This is the final notice to growers and water users of the Patterson Irrigation District that the District will be shut down during the period of November 15, 2018 through March 1, 2019. This is to allow the District to perform the following:

  • Perform winter maintenance and repairs
  • Finalize the Schedule A Improvments of the Main Canal Rehabilitation Project, which includes executing the connections to the laterals and turnouts along the pipeline, abandonment of Pump Stations 2 and 3, and testing of the new pump station.

This wintertime shutdown period was assessed based upon historic wintertime operations to minimize impacts for a winter irrigation water demand for the district. It should be noted, that although the District will be shut down, if the winter produces little or no rain, the District is developing a contingency plan to set in motion to at least make some water available if absolutely necessary. Attached below is a link to the formal notice provided landowners and water users of the District.
