The IID Water Department is continually conducting maintenance—both preventative and reactive—of its waterways. With procedures like disking, chaining, cleaning, concrete lining repair, vegetation management, and bank, gate, pipe and road maintenance, the Maintenance Unit keeps the Colorado River water flowing. The Construction Unit is responsible for new canal lining projects, adding pipelines, and all other major repair and additions to IID’s water system included in the annual capital improvement program (CIP). While some procedures can be done while a canal or drain has water in it, much of the work is completed during planned ‘Cut-Out’ periods. For a list of planned canal cutouts, see the schedules posted below.
