Madera Irrigation District will Begin the 2024 Water Season

The Madera Irrigation District (MID or District) water season will begin the week of April 8, 2024.  At a meeting held on April 4, 2024, the rate was set to $110 per acre foot for Original District landowners and $300 per acre foot for Subordinate landowners.  These rates may be reviewed and adjusted as conditions change throughout the year.

“After a historic 2023 season, the longest on record for MID, we are excited that the 2024 season is already kicking off” stated Jim Erickson, MID Board President.  “Our crews have had only three short months to perform many maintenance tasks and complete numerous infrastructure projects after moving hundreds of thousands of acre feet of water through our system last year.  The MID staff has been working hard to prepare the system for deliveries and now, the 2024 season is set to begin.”

MID growers must fill out a Crop Water Application and order water prior to taking deliveries, the availability and timing will be location dependent.  MID is accepting Crop Water Applications and water orders now.  To sign up or to order water please contact the office at 559-673-3514 or at Madera Irrigation District, 12152 Road 28 ¼, Madera, CA.  Crop Water Applications will be accepted via email and in-person.

The District would also like to remind growers that they can view their water usage and account balances online via WaterUI.  If you need log-in assistance, please contact MID at 559-673-3514.
