The District Today

Farmers Irrigation District is located in Hood River, Oregon, in the beautiful, culturally rich Columbia River Gorge. It is a nonprofit government agency founded in 1874. Water is provided to over 5,800 acres of land, both residential and agricultural. The Hood River Valley produces large quantities of high value pears, apples, cherries, and wine grapes

Serving the Northern Hood River Valley since 1874.


System Notification: Oregon Water Resources Department (OWRD) allows the Hood River Basin irrigation season to begin April 15th and end September 30th. FID is not allowed to deliver water for irrigation purposes outside of that date range. In early April, District irrigation crews assess moisture levels throughout the District to estimate when specific area soils and crops will most likely require water. The irrigation system is then charged accordingly, and in response to grower demand.
