** Irrigation season begins April 10 **


Due to the significant volume of unexpected precipitation, the Lewiston Orchards Irrigation District (LOID)’s Board of Directors has lifted irrigation restrictions. The LOID Board of Directors will revisit the need for irrigation restrictions for the 2016 season at their May Board Meeting.  The Board has asked patrons to be good stewards of their water.  By continuing to water conservatively, we can ensure enough water to complete the irrigation season without irrigation restrictions. Please remember to turn off your sprinklers during rain events, watering only when your soil is dry.   Our hope is that with conservative behavior from our patrons, we can make it through the summer irrigation season without the LOID restricting watering times.

The Lewiston Orchards Irrigation District (LOID) is a dual water purveyor committed to its fundamental objective of providing reliable water service for domestic and irrigation uses.

It is the intent of the LOID to provide untreated irrigation water to all patrons within the irrigation district during the irrigation season at adequate pressure in an efficient manner and at a reasonable cost.

It is also the intent of the LOID to provide quality and safe domestic water service for drinking at a reasonable cost to the resident of the District and its domestic annexations.

The Lewiston Orchards Irrigation District is committed to the long-term reliability of it’s systems.
