GVWUA is responsible for the flow of water in its canal, in its laterals and through its headgates. All parts of delivery systems (ditches, laterals, pipelines, pumps) beyond the headgates are the responsibility of landowners. If subdivisions in the GVWUA service area are interested in organizing their own laterals via a Homeowner’s Association, please contact the GVWUA at (970)242-5065.
Salinity Project and Seasonal Water Turn on/Turnoff Information
The GVWUA was awarded a Salinity Control Program Grant to line approximately one mile of canal through the Palisade area. This project is scheduled to take place while water is out of the canal in the fall and winter months of 2016/17 and 2017/18. Any remaining work must be finished by December 31, 2018.
Spring 2018 Salinity work was completed on Wednesday, March 28, 2018, and will continue after irrigation water turnoff November 1, 2018, to be finished by December 31, 2018.
Irrigation water was turned into the Government Highline Canal at the Cameo Roller Dam on Friday, March 30, 2018. It will take approximately 5 to 6 days to fill the canal, which runs to Mack, CO, approximately 7 Road. The canal must be full before irrigation water is turned into individual laterals by the Ditch Riders.
Thank you, we appreciate your cooperation.
