Water Supply

The water shut off date for the season has been set for September 8th.

Note: We recognize the shut off date is significantly earlier than previous years, but is based on the fact that the District will be out of water by then. Tumalo Creek died 3 weeks earlier than last year without bouncing back and Crescent Lake only reached ~ 17,500 acre feet after this spring’s runoff.

If you do not already know where our water supply comes from, you can read a brief overview here.

The OSU Extension Service included an article in their most recent newsletter on page 4 about Drought Year Management. If you are interested in reading this article you can view the newsletter here.

The Oregon Water Resources Department maintains a drought website that provides the status of current water conditions and state drought declarations, as well as information on what you can do to use water wisely.  Visit their drought page here.
