Yuma Irrigation District

The YID was constructed with water conservation in mind.

The Yuma Irrigation District has approximately 8 miles of open concrete lined canals and approximately 26 miles of underground pipelines of laterals. The underground pipeline is precast concrete, varying in size from 60 to 30 inches. All the water that is delivered is metered at the farm turnouts with open-flow water meters. Over 99% of the farmer owned ditches are concrete lined at this time and sprinklers are used on over 7,000 acres of produce to germinate seed and establish stands to further increase its capacity and conserve water.
