TID District Map.pdf
TID maintains a list of parcels of land to which we deliver water, tracks the water license the diversion falls under and the type of water use. TID also maintains an accounting of the land classification that specifies how much of the land is irrigated in determining the acreage that a parcel may have under irrigation, as prescribed by the Irrigation Districts Act. TID Land Services prepares water agreements and accommodates the purchase and sale of irrigation acres. Currently TID has irrigation acres for sale at a rate of $1800/ac for assessed lands meeting irrigability and other related requirements and already within, or eligible to add a parcel to, the Taber Irrigation District.
