Note for water share irrigation users:

Please be advised that your annual maintenance fees are designated for the upkeep of the open ditch areas within our community. It is important to note that while we diligently maintain these communal irrigation channels, individual customers are responsible for the maintenance of the pipes running from the street into their respective properties. By collectively contributing to the maintenance of open ditch areas, we ensure the efficient and effective operation of our irrigation system for the benefit of all users.

Your cooperation in upholding these responsibilities is greatly appreciated as we work together to preserve the functionality and reliability of our irrigation infrastructure.

Thank you for your attention and ongoing support.
