Irrigation Information

Settlers Irrigation Water was  turned on Monday April 13 2020.

As in previous years, irrigation water in the subdivision WILL BE ON A ROTATION BASIS SUCH THAT THERE WILL BE ENOUGH WATER FOR ALL.

The system is not designed to allow, and will not work, if all homeowners water at the same time.

If too many homes irrigate at the same time, especially during the peak use time of 5:00 a.m. – 9:00 a.m., the pump station will produce low pressure and volume and may shut off.

Homeowners are allowed to water only 3 days per week for no more than 2 hours TOTAL for all sprinkler stations on each of those days.

WATERING SCHEDULES: (As prescribed by Settlers Water 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 at 3:00 a.m. OR 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. For example, if you have 6 stations, this equates to 20 minutes total per station.


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.

Remember to have your irrigation system “winterized” after the October shut-down to help prevent line breaks from our freezing winters!!

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 .
