2021 Irrigation Season officially ends Sunday, October 10th.
👆

Why the 10th? Theres a lot that goes into choosing the date, but most importantly, it takes time to shut everything down in preparation for cold/freezing temperatures.

| After water is officially off, you may still see water in our canals. This is normal. We use that left over water for testing purposes.

| Dont forget: Your second half payment (if you paid in full, please disregard) is due October 31st. Pro Tip – Paying on time will ensure that your entire payment is applied to your assessment. When a payment is late the late fee and interest is paid first, then the remaining payment is applied to the assessment, leaving a small balance which will incur additional interest. 

| ➡️ Our office hours are changing soon. Beginning November 1st, we move back to our water-off schedule which is Monday-Thursday | 8am-5:30pm, closed Fridays. 

| Our office is still closed to the public due to COVID-19.

| If you have any general irrigation questions regarding our history, what we do, how we work, etc., please dont hesitate to send them my way at pr@kid.org. I am putting together a comprehensive FAQ on our website for the 2022 watering season. 

| I truly appreciate all of your questions, comments and suggestions! If youre not aware, when you message or comment on our social media pages, youll get me, Matthew Berglund, Public Relations Coordinator for KID, about 99% of the time. Not a robot or a random person, just me! Its been a pleasure talking with many of you. You may not always like my answer, but Ill always do my best to provide you one!
