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.

This is a
friendly reminder of the annual meeting being held February 12, 2019 at
7:00pm. In order for RWP to conduct this
meeting we will need to reach our quorum and very much appreciate your proxy

not of concern however, without them we cannot conduct the annual meeting. Thank you all for your participation.
Today’s update is in regards to yesterday’s update.
If you have not received several past due statements, a demand letter and a forfeiture letter, you are paid up to date. We mail assessments out in February and the assessment is due by May 1st. If you do not pay by the end of May you then receive a past due statement the first of June, July and August. If you have still not paid by the end of August, you will receive a demand letter the first of September. Lastly, if you have not paid by the end of September you will receive a forfeiture letter the first of October.

The tentative date to take water out of the ditches for the 2018 season is October 15, 2018 depending on weather. We may have to push this date up if we experience high winds or heavy rainfall. High winds can blow leaves into the main ditches and open laterals causing them to become plugged, which can lead to flooding and property damage.
