Just another sign that summer is on the way is that starting on Monday you will start seeing irrigation canals in Nampa and Meridian being filled. The details were first reported by KIVI and explains how crews had been working and testing the system all last week to make sure everything was working properly. Experts are saying this should be a good irrigation season for water users in the Treasure Valley.

Water managers did mention that Lake Lowell is near the same water level it was at last year around this same time. A few months ago the outlook wasn't was good as it looks now but Nampa and Meridian District water superintendent, Greg Curtis said, "We should be in good shape".

It won't be long until our lawns are going to need all of that water so to know as a homeowner in Nampa that our irrigation system is looking good is always welcomed news.
