2023 Water Allocation

Sep 11, 2023


Notice to All Irrigators

September 11, 2023

Thank you for efforts in water conservation during the past 11 days as our water usage as a District has decreased during harvest activity.

We continue to run minimum flows to enable the District to provide water until our shut down date of September 22, 2023.  Therefore, effective September 12, each irrigator (owned, rented or leased land) will be permitted to irrigate on NO MORE THAN 25%, at the same time, of the irrigation acres being farmed by the irrigator. 

Please work with your Water Coordinator to determine how to irrigate within this parameter and to adhere to all water ordering procedures to allow the District to continue to provide water until September 22nd.

If you have any questions, please contact your Board Member or the Lethbridge Main Office at 403 328 4401.
