SCID has announce that water will only be released from the dam on
Fridays and Saturdays.
The AdLP will runs some water on
Wednesdays and Thursdays allowing other ditches down river to use
water on Mondays and Tuesdays.
My name is Mark Herrera and I am your Mayordomo. As Mayordomo I
am responsible for the flow of water and the day to day operation of
the acequia. Please call me at 927-4740 before using water from the
Ditch cleaning is underway and we are expecting to begin flowing
water into the ditches the first week in April.
Looks like the dam will be full to start the season. However, we are
still in severe drought and without additional rain we expect the
SCID to again restrict irrigation days in the not too distant
Welcome to the Acequia de La Puebla
Today irrigation is a matter of cultural survival, historical
preservation, and a tradition to pass on to future generations.
Welcome/Bienvenidos to our website. For centuries the people of La Puebla
have cared for, maintained and used the acequias that carry water
through our community. In the early days of La Puebla, irrigation
was a matter of basic surviival. Today irrigation is a matter of
cultural survival, historical preservation, and a tradition to pass on
to future generations.
This website is an effort to foster better communication about the
Acequia de La Puebla among all parciantes. Our goal is to provide
everyone using the water with information to help the system work
smoothly. The Commissioners and mayordomo hope to keep everyone informed
about events, watering schedules, emergencies, meetings and other
information to help keep the water flowing. Please check back often for
updates and new information about the Acequia de La Puebla.
Call before using water
Due to heavy snow fall this Winter our water situation is better
than in recent years. So while we have more water to use, parciantes
still need to call the Mayordomo before irrigating.
Mayordomo needs you to call so he can make sure everyone gets water
when they need it. Using water without permission may result in your
gate being closed so scheduled users can finish without
interruption. For now there is plenty of water but everyone still
needs to take turns when watering.
So, as always, we are asking everyone to be a good acequia citizen by
calling Mayordomo, Mark Herrera at 927-4740 before
you water and when you are finished. If you call when finished the
Mayordomo can call the next scheduled user.
cooperation is appreciated.
