Farmers Irrigation District strives to promote ecologically, socially, and economically
sustainable agriculture by providing energy and irrigation service for the common good
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.
