CANYON CITY - The Upper John Day Basin's Watermaster's office reminds water right holders that the irrigation season on the Upper Mainstem John Day River and all tributaries ended Sept. 30.

No irrigation from these sources will be authorized after that date unless it involves an out-of-season water right for irrigation. Also, irrigation from groundwater sources not substantially connected to surface water may be allowed through Oct. 31, if the individual water right allows it. For more information, contact the Watermaster's Office at (541) 575-0119.
