The irrigation season will be here soon! We will be turning water into the ditches on Monday, April 8, 2019. RWP’S water comes directly from the Gunnison River and is not filtered in any way. Many things can influence the amount of dirt and debris in the water such as spring runoff, rain storms, fires, etc. A sudden storm in the mountains can affect the water in a very short time and the water can go from clean to dirty in no time at all. It is a good idea to close your head gate and let the irrigation water clear up for a couple days before passing it through your irrigation pumps.
