MISSION STATEMENT

It is OID’s mission to effectively and efficiently serve the current and future irrigation needs of our patrons by economically operating and maintaining the districts resources with honesty and integrity.

Ditch Preparation

To ensure an uninterrupted flow of water to your property, please make sure that all private ditches are clean and clear of overgrowth, weeds, leaves and trash. It is the responsibility of the water user to maintain their ditches. Be sure to inspect ditches for gopher and other rodent damage and repair as needed before the irrigation season begins.
