Our vision is a progressive and cohesive team, supporting the diverse needs of our water users through a heritage of efficient operations, a drive for continuous improvment, and a spirit of collaboration toward responsible water management in Specialty Crop Country
Our mission is to provide sufficient, quality water to our rate payers through collaborative planning, regular upgrading, proactive maintenance and cost-effective operation, enabled by an informed board and dedicated staff using sustainable management practices
"We value the contributions of the irrigation pioneers from whose legacy we operate, and the sound decisions of previous boards and staff that have built a strong foundation."
