NOTICE OF SEWAGE DISCHARGE TO ROZA MAIN CANAL – AUGUST 29, 2018

Notice: A Terrace Heights Sewer District pipeline carrying raw sewage across the Roza Irrigation District Canal along Terrace Heights Drive was found leaking sewage into the Roza Canal at approximately 7:30 am on Wednesday, August 29. Sewer District personnel were able to stop the flow by about 8:00 am. It is unknown how long the sewage had been leaking into the canal, but it is suspected that the leak occurred sometime during the previous night.

Roza Irrigation District personnel are working to try to understand the level of contamination to the canal water. Landowners are advised that contaminated water is in the Roza Main Canal and will take approximately three days to entirely clear the system. Landowners wishing to stop delivery to their properties should contact the Roza Irrigation District as soon as possible.
