Montezuma Valley Irrigation Company

2018 Announcements


No further changes were made

at the August 7 special meeting.

Due to water shortage we are going to 3/4’s of a head. 

The flow rate will be cut on each headgate to no more than 75% of the total shares allocated to the gate.

(Number of shares x .75 for weirs and parshalls.)

(5.62 gallons per minute x .75 = 4.22 gallons per minute for meters.)  

The allocation is still set at 36 inches or 3 acre feet per share.  Gates will be turned off when the allocation is met.

 The water situation will be revisited weekly. 

Notice of changes will be made by the website.

A date has NOT been set for water to be shut off.

Shareholders will be shut off

when their allocation has been used.



For Aquatic Nuisance Species/Mussels and lake closure information, please see our Aquatic Nuisance Restrictions page.



No water, which includes stock water, leases, and regular irrigation water, will be delivered until the shareholder account is paid in full.

Assessments are due March 31st. Interest will be assessed starting April 1st for all unpaid accounts as indicated on assessment bills.

All orders require a minimum of 24 hours notice.  Orders must be placed before 4pm Monday thru Thursday for next day delivery.  Orders placed by 4pm Friday will be delivered the following Monday.  No orders will be filled on weekends.
