2022 Irrigation Season Update
On Wednesday, February 9, 2022, Water Applications were mailed to the District's Water Customers. Also, mailed with the Water Applications was a letter giving an update from General Manager Kristin Sicke.
Unfortunately, this is the third dry year, despite the October and December 2021 rain events. Currently, the District is not planning for 2022 irrigation releases.
Water Applications are due without a deposit by Tuesday, March 15, 2022, in the event the District does have water to sell. No late applications will be accepted.
The February 9th letter in its entirety can be viewed by clicking here.
As always, the District welcomes your comments and questions.

Indian Valley Campground to Remain Closed
It is with sincere regret that the District is announcing that the Indian Valley Campground will not be opening for the the 2022 camping season. The district relies on the sale of water for approximately 80% of its operating budget. Three consecutive dry years have not only left Indian Valley Reservoir with exceptionally low water levels, but with a serious budgetary shortfall for all District operations. Unfortunately, the fees collected at the campground do not come close to covering the costs of campground maintenance, thus forcing the District to make this difficult choice. Please contact Jennifer Reed at the District office if you have any questions. Thank you.
