Pending water availability, water will be turned down the canal on

April 12, 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 15 - 20, 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.
