Columbia Irrigation District is asking water users to start alternating watering days because of low water in the canal system.
The low water is caused by the hot weather and high temperatures, according to a news release.
The district is asking water users to alternate watering days using an even and odd address method while the water levels remain low. That means property owners with an even numbered address should water on even numbered calendar days, and those with odd number addresses should water on odd numbered calendar days.
Switching to this method immediately may help the district avoid mandatory shut downs, according to a news release.
For more information, call the district office at 509-586-6118.
