SVID and the Roza are gearing up to turn off irrigation water for the winter season.
SVID will start shutting down the main Sunnyside canal this coming Sunday, Oct. 18, so deliveries and laterals between the head gate and Granger will start to drop off. Work will continue on the 19th, so deliveries from Granger to Sunnyside will start to drop off. The complete and final shut down of the main Sunnyside canal will commence on Oct. 20; all other deliveries and laterals will start dropping off.
Also on Oct. 20, SVID will start draining the main Sunnyside canal. All drainage activities are expected to be complete by the end of October, although most will be drained out within a few days of final shut down.
The Roza system will be shut off on Oct. 20.
