Equitable Distribution


In support of IID’s Colorado River water management responsibilities, each calendar year IID apportions its annual water supply to all users in accordance with the Oct. 28, 2013 revised Equitable Distribution Plan. To be eligible for the agricultural apportionment, a field must be connected to IID’s canal system, be current with its water availability charges and water bills, be larger than 5 acres in size and used for crop production, algae farming or an actively managed duck pond. Water users may aggregate water accounts into farm units to facilitate the use and management of water among the fields in those accounts. Additionally, the EDP allows for an intra-district clearinghouse for the movement of agricultural water between IID Agricultural Water Users and Farm Units within the IID water service area. Movement of water between users is only possible through the use of the Agricultural Water Clearinghouse.
