Updated: Apr 15, 2020
FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
August 23, 2019
Due to an abundant amount of snow and precipitation this year, the Fresno Irrigation District will be able to deliver water to customers through the end of October 2019, making for an 8-month irrigation season. FID encourages its growers to continue to irrigate with surface water until the irrigation season ends.
While most growers have started harvesting their crops, it is important that they schedule their next irrigation with their Water System Operator (WSO). In general, the East side growers will stay on their schedule while the rest of the district will receive their irrigation via call and demand.
For information on the WSO that serves each area, visit the “Growers” page on our updated website at www.fresnoirrigation.com/growers. Questions may also be directed to the District office by phone at (559) 233-7161 or email at email@example.com.
“Achieving groundwater sustainability depends on taking advantage of all available surface water supplies. We encourage all of our users to irrigate with surface water for the remainder of the irrigation season,” stated FID’s General Manager Bill Stretch.
Since 1920, the Fresno Irrigation District has proudly delivered water to agricultural and urban communities within Fresno County. Today, the District encompasses over 250,000 acres of prime farmland and municipal areas, including the cities of Fresno and Clovis. As the premier irrigation district in the Central Valley, the District is extensively involved in a host of local, state, and federal water issues.
