Irrigation Information

Settlers Irrigation District  (SID) supplies our yard/landscape irrigation water.

IRRIGATION WATER IS SHUT OFF (BY SID) AS OF OCTOBER 14.

It is highly recommended to have your sprinkler pipes blown out by a professional with a high power air compressor. Winter temperatures CAN and DO freeze up sprinkler buried in the ground!


WATERING SCHEDULES DURING THE NORMAL SUMMER WATERING SEASON: (As prescribed by Settlers Irrigation District) https://www.settlersirrigation.org/

Saguaro Canyon Subdivision watering time is based on the last number in your house address number.

For example, if your house address ends in a 3, you can water starting at 3:00 a.m. OR at 3:00 p.m.

Odd house numbers water on Tuesday, Thursdays and Saturdays.

Even house numbers water on Mondays, Wednesdays, and Fridays.

Sundays are reserved for common areas only.

Each homeowner must set their sprinkler controller to begin watering at a start time to coincide with this schedule.

The time elapsed for ALL sprinkler stations on your controller is 2 HOURS TOTAL per scheduled day. For example, if you have 6 stations, this equates to 20 minutes total per station.

PLEASE BE RESPONSIBLE AND TAKE NO MORE IRRIGATION WATER THAN IS NEEDED ON YOUR PROPERTY!

Report any common area irrigation issues to Erik@SnakeRiverHOA.com

 


IRRIGATION SYSTEMS LEAKS OR BREAKS – WHAT TO DO:

Highlighted below are the three (3) most common irrigation repair scenarios, along with their respective solutions:

1-Individual Homeowner: If there is an irrigation problem on your property (within your property lines), you, or the property owner is responsible for the repair.  If you or the property owner are not able to repair the problem yourself, you will need to contact an irrigation technician/landscaper for help.  In the event you do not have your own landscape company, the Saguaro Canyon subdivision HOA landscaper may be able to help.  Contact Snake River HOA Management (208-855-0505) for the landscapers contact information during regular business hours.

2-Saguaro Canyon Subdivision HOA Common Areas: If the issue is on an HOA Common area, please contact Snake River HOA Management (208-855-0505) to report the problem during regular business hours. Be prepared to give the approximate address (cross streets) so the irrigation technician can be directed to the right location.

For after-hours repairs to an HOA Common area only (NOT a homeowner’s property/system) please contact a Board member. Board Member emails are listed on the Board Information page on this site.

3-Settlers Irrigation: If the issue is with a main supply line or a curb stop valve please contact Settlers Irrigation (208-870-4292) directly. The curb-stop valve is where the irrigation pipe comes onto your property from the Settler’s main line, which is typically under the street where you live.

Water storage pond

The water storage pond  and the pump house just to the southeast of it between E. Segundo and E. Cholla Hills belongs to the Settlers Water district. Settlers is in charge of the maintenance of the pond. Saguaro Canyon Subdivision does not own or manage this storage pond.

Do not swim, play, or let your dogs swim in the water storage pond as the water can be very stagnent and unhealthy. The pond is NOT stocked with fish.

Notice that many migrant birds like to take refuge there and do what they do. Please do not throw rocks at the birds or into the pond.

The water feature/waterfall at the north side of the storage pond does belong to Saguaro Canyon Subdivision.

If there are any serious issues please notify erik@snakeriverhoa.com .
