Talent Irrigation District (TID) update
Talent Irrigation District (TID) began turning on irrigation water to the Ashland canal yesterday.
TID water will be available for irrigation use tomorrow for customers in the front section of the ditch between Walker Avenue and Terrace Street. Customers in the back section of the ditch between Granite Street to Grandview Drive, will receive water in the middle of next week. The Water Department is requesting that customers with TID service ensure their systems are ready for the irrigation season.
While TID is available for irrigation purposes now, a likely 2015 drought may result in the need to divert TID water to the water treatment plant again this year. If that occurs, then TID water customers in the back section will have their TID water shut off. In that event, customers will be notified in advance of any planned shut offs.
Please call the Water Department at 541-488-5353 if you have any questions.
