Price of the Irrigation Assessment - Doesn't Equal Value
The monetary price for irrigation water is not representative of the value and the need for water in our society. Several communities throughout the United States and around the world are running out of water. While many of us take water for granted: we turn on the spigot and water flows, many people have limited access to water. The yearly assessment for irrigation is not based on consumption of water. It is based primarily on your property size. The irrigation assessment pays for the operation and maintenance costs of the irrigation delivery system. The Lewiston Orchards Irrigation District has worked very hard to provide inexpensive irrigation water to our patrons.
