Due to the weather the area has been receiving, water will be turned down the canal on April 19, 2023. It will take approximately 3 days for the water to reach Rogers Mesa.  Fire Mountain Canal and Reservoir Company will be giving you a grace period from April 19 - 23, 2023 to turn your own water on.  If you are not able to utilize this grace period, a notice will be placed on your head gate notifying you that you will need to call your ditch rider to have your water turned on.  

Water is now in the canal.  Water users on Rogers Mesa will see fluctuating water levels due to components in gate #4 needing to be replaced.  There may be a time when the water is down for a short period while it is being worked on.  Thank you for your patience.
