MANAGERS NOTE
APRIL 20, 2016
The District is so relieved that we have 50" of snow pack at Fourmile our highest lake. Fourmile storage is at 40% full. Fish Lake is currently at 0 inches snow pack and 62% of full. For the South Reservoirs, (Howard Prairie, Hyatt and Emigrant) Medford Irrigation District's percentage of allocations (so far) is 56%. We are hoping to reach 75% overall. The stream flows need to stay up in order to supply all our Patrons until at least mid-June. This will allow us not to tap into the stored waters until after this. At this point the volumes and how often spring rains occur will determine the type of irrigation season we all will have. It is better than last year though. The field crew has been busy bringing water down from the South and North Forks of Little Butte Creeks. This involves placing boards across the creeks at the diversions, activating the fish screens, etc. Placing boards in the numerous creek/canal crossings and cleaning debris out in front of the head of water as it flows through the delivery system. Currently we have some flows near the end of the East Main Canal (Phoenix area). For the West Side, the Bear Creek diversion has been installed and creek crossings have boards installed. The water is currently at Horns Creek (Old Stage Rd.) and will be pushed all the way to the end of the main canal by Friday, if all goes well. Water delivery requests will be taken next week, but full deliveries are anticipated to begin May 2nd.
