Pressurized Irrigation Systems Expected To Turn On Tuesday


By Brittany Cooper

Twin Falls, Idaho ( KMVT-TV / KSVT-TV ) We are a few weeks into spring and the City of Twin Falls Water Department has started running water to its pressurized irrigation systems.

The process known as charging, prepares the systems to distribute water to sprinkler systems throughout area subdivisions.

There are 25 pressurized irrigation systems in the city, including a series of large holding tanks and pumps.

Officials expect to turn on the systems starting Tuesday and will continue to activate stations around the community as they fully charge.

All stations are expected to be operating by April 30th.

"We encourage people strongly to use water conservation efforts, to follow the water schedule, to not over water the lawns, because we do want to remind citizens that we are still in a drought," adds Josh Palmer, City of Twin Falls.

The systems will be active until the canal company turns off water flows. You can visit the city's website for updates.
