Dawson PPD was due to release load control at 10 p.m. on Thursday, July 14, 2022. At 10:02 p.m., controllers allowed irrigation systems to restart. However, at 10:13 p.m. a software problem returned wells to controlled status, turning off irrigation systems. We apologize for the problem. We were able to re-release control and irrigation loads were up by 11:30 p.m. If your well has not returned to uncontrolled status Friday morning (7/15), please call us at 308-324-2386 or 800-752-8305.

During load control, Dawson PPD always has a technician at the office to monitor the system. Dawson’s load controllers are programmed to stop controlling 12 hours after the start time. This extra programming (to release after 12 hours) is a backup plan to help in situations like the one we experienced Thursday night when the early release didn’t work correctly. We have been communicating with our vendor to address the software issues.

As a reminder, Dawson PPD is scheduled to control irrigation loads starting at 11:45 a.m. Friday.
