Drop 5 Complete, Water is again moving to the Milk River
October 14, 2020
For the first time since May 19 water is running through Drop 5 of the St. Mary's Diversion. Project Manager Jennifer Patrick stated, "At about 3:15 (Saturday, August 10) the Drop 5 structure ran water for the first time. This has been such an unbelievable and at times overwhelming project to be a part of. The teamwork, partnerships and honestly friendships that have been forged in 22 short weeks are incredible." Water will be soon flowing back into Fresno Reservoir, providing a huge sigh of relief for the more than 18,000 residents that rely on its service.
