Water Conservation Grant
The Board of Directors and Management of the Rogue River Irrigation District are pleased to announce that we have entered into a grant agreement with the Bureau of Reclamation to pipe an approximately 1.2 mile section of the Hopkins Canal from Spring Creek to Antelope Creek. RRVID is also looking to obtain additional grant funding for a connected canal piping project that would allow us to provide pressurized water to our patrons along piped sections of the current Hopkins Canal to Bradshaw Drop. We are also partnering with the Jackson Soil and Water Conservation District (JSWD) to look at opportunities for our patrons to receive assistance in converting from flood to sprinkle irrigation systems. We are excited about the benefits this project will have for our District and its patrons. For more information click here.
