2023 Water Run Notice

General Information about the 2023 Water Run

Dinuba – At a special board meeting on May 3rd, the Alta Irrigation District Board of Directors acted to initiate charging for water deliveries and authorized the General Manager to adjust entitlement and irrigation schedules, as needed, to protect the integrity of infrastructure, and to adapt to changing weather patterns, runoff forecasts, and storage in Pine Flat Lake. Any water conveyed in or diverted from infrastructure within the boundary of Alta Irrigation District will be charged pursuant to the rate schedule below.

Entitlement Category Water Charge
25% to100% $10.25 per acre-foot
Groundwater Only $13.25 per acre-foot

 

Landowners are to place water orders a minimum of 48 hours prior to receiving or increasing/decreasing deliveries (see Rule No. 8, Rules & Regulations). Ditchtenders are available from 6:00 a.m. to 2:30 p.m. – returning to normal work hours once daytime highs drop below 100 degrees – to take water orders and they can be reached by calling the phone numbers listed in the tables below. If a ditchtender does not answer the phone, then leave a message or send your order via text. Report any non-emergency maintenance issue(s) such as gate repair/replacement, broken air vent, illegal dumping, reactivating a turnout, etc., to your ditchtender(s) as phones are equipped with a feature that allows tracking of such issues. As for emergency issues such as a canal breach, canal overtopping, leaky pipeline, etc., please contact Steve Barnett immediately at (559) 805-7524. Please leave a detailed message about the emergency issue(s) and identify nearest cross streets or turnout number.
