Madera Irrigation District Projects End To Another Successful Water Season

The Madera Irrigation District (District or MID) expects to begin draining down the system the week of September 4.

After an exceptionally dry beginning to the year, MID is proud that it was able to extend the water season into September, creating an almost five month delivery season for its growers.  Once water season has concluded, MID will enter the 2018-2019 maintenance season.  MID will be rehabilitating, replacing, and upgrading facilities for future District operations during this maintenance period.

“The District is pleased with the 2018 water season operations.  Through its portfolio of water supplies and partnerships with other agencies, MID growers were able to access affordable surface water through the majority of the peak demand period” stated Thomas Greci, General Manager.
