Taber Irrigation District (TID) Statement On Overland Drainage

Disturbing snow from a natural melt in place process will cause the snow to mix with water creating frazil or Slush that will compress and create blockages at any point of constriction.  Constrictions include but are not limited to road crossings, trash racks, approaches, culverts, and narrowing ditches or canals.  Other factors that contribute to frazil include water rushing towards snow and sudden dropping temperatures.

If possible it is recommended to let snow melt in place allowing it to carve out its own channel and remain in the state of water to flow.

TID is reminding people not to pump or divert water into TID Canals without consent.  AEP advises TID to report any unauthorized diversion of water into TID works.

TID also reminds people that banks of the canals may not be stable and can be very dangerous.
