East Fork Irrigation District

Public Scoping Meeting October 18th for Irrigation Improvements

On October 3, 2018 the Natural Resources Conservation Service (NRCS) announced a public scoping meeting to consider improvements to aging irrigation infrastructure in the East Fork Irrigation District, located in Hood River County. Improvements under consideration may be partially funded through the Watershed Protection and Flood Prevention Act of 1954 (PL 83-566) and would address water conservation, enhancement of aquatic species habitat, and public safety risks while supporting existing agricultural land use. This is a collaborative effort between NRCS, East Fork Irrigation District, and Farmers Conservation Alliance.
