Our District

Since 1920, Fresno Irrigation District has been serving the Central Valley.

The District became the successor to the privately owned Fresno Canal and Land Company in 1920.  At which time, we purchased over 800 miles of canals and distribution networks that were constructed between 1860 and 1890.  In addition to the canals, the District also retained extensive water rights on the Kings River.  The District also receives a small amount of water from the San Joaquin River through the Friant Water Authority.



The Fresno Irrigation District is a member of the North Kings Groundwater Sustainability Agency (NKGSA), a multi-agency effort to comply with the passage of the California Sustainable Groundwater Management Act (SGMA) of 2014.  The NKGSA is one of seven Groundwater Sustainability Agencies in the Kings Sub-basin. 


Our District, along with many others, will tirelessly work until we

obtain the sustainability necessary to support our future water needs.
