With the river dropping below 200 CFS we are now under water restrictions. We are experiencing the worst drought in years. What does this mean?
1. All residential watering is to be done between the hours of 6am-6pm. And no more than 2 days per week.
2. All Agriculture needs to be watering with 12 hour sets, and week to 10 days between waterings.
3. Check and double check for broken heads on all systems.
4. Ag users, please be diligent with your birds and leaks. If your line leaks or a head is missing, please repair it before it’s turned on.
I will be notifying Headgate and pipeline managers regarding further Restrictions as they happen as well as if users are watering outside of their allotted time. I appreciate your patience and understanding as we work through this water shortage, please be mindful of those further down the line. If you have any questions feel free to contact me.

We already have a less than average start to the water year and are starting under restrictions, please be mindful and cognizant of your water usage. Contact your Head gate managers for watering schedules. Any other questions contact Jason at 435-512-4068. Thank you! Let’s hope for some more rain!

Due to the current Corona Virus situation, the CHWA Board of Directors has decided to CANCEL the CHWA 2021 Annual Meeting of the Shareholders. Board of directors whose terms would expire at the annual meeting, have all agreed to continue serving until such time as the next Shareholder Meeting. If you have individual questions or concerns, please contact our Operations Manager, Jason Morgado (435) 512-4068 or Water Manger’s, Erik Ashcroft (435) 881-2280 and Luke Bair (208) 670-2933. Please note; Kim Cronquist is no longer with CHWA. It looks like we will have a “below normal” water year. Water allocation will be under the direction of the Water Masters and all head-gate managers are required to work closely with the water managers for their allocation. We urge all users to be as conservative as possible utilizing the water!

“Recent water restrictions from the Logan River Commissioner require that all residential watering must be done between the hours of 7am-7pm. By complying with these new restrictions we can maintain our flow regulation system and ensure everyone receives the water they need. Please inform the users on your turnout. Your cooperation is highly appreciated. Please contact me at 435-512-4068 if you have any questions or concerns.”
To All Shareholders,
As of now we are looking at least a good or above average water year.
As of this today the snow water equivalent average is 111% (Tony Grove Lake 117%, Franklin Basin 101%, & Temple Fork 103%). This is compared with the averages on the date’s runoff begins for each site.
The precipitation average is 93% (Tony Grove Lake 105%, Franklin Basin 92%, Temple Fork 95%). This is compared with averages for the same dates as above.
Current precipitation is adding to those percentages as I write this. If we don’t warm up to rapidly, we will have a good water year. Let’s still stick to our schedules and water conscientiously.
We are currently running a little water through the upper canal and getting it clean and ready to turn into the pipeline. Due to some construction delays on 3100 North going through the pipeline will not be pressured up until the 23rd of April. Luckily, we have a few storms between now and then, as well having very good soil moisture.
If you have any questions or concerns, feel free to contact our water managers Jason and Kim. All contact information can be found on our website.

We have had a great water year in 2019 and we would thank our head gate managers and end users for being conscientious water users. Do the proper scheduling we had smooth and relatively uneventful water season.
