2024 Irrigation Season

Your Ditch Rider is your first point of contact for any irrigation water issues

NOTICE as of Tuesday, June 12th

We are currently experiencing a water shortage because of the hot, dry weather and the high demand for irrigation water.  Therefore, until further notice, irrigation water deliveries will be made at 1.5cubic foot/second (cfs) per 40 acres of your Class-one Acres.

Please remember to submit a completed Water Order Card 2 days in advance of when water is turned ON or when water is turned OFF.  This will help us manage the water deliveries.

Contact your Ditch Rider if you have questions.  Thank you for your cooperation.

There are currently no Lateral repairs in progress.

Easements and Rights-of-Way Explained

Who owns them, who has rights to them, and how do they work? Click the link below for an in-depth look at the different easements and how they may affect you as a property owner.

Assessment Rate Classification

GVWUA’s Assessments are based on irrigable acres or “Class 1 Acres” as determined by the Bureau of Reclamation. Assessment rates are then classified by the number of Class 1 Acres and the land use. Land that has been Developed but left in the Agricultural Classification is being moved to the Developed Assessment rate.

Assessments must be paid prior to the beginning of the 2024 irrigation season to receive water.

Responsibilities

Grand Valley Water Users is tasked with maintaining and conserving our easements.

Irrigation canals and ditches and associated banks, roadways, gates, and irrigation facilities are private property not open for use by the public for any purpose without consent of the affected landowners and Grand Valley Water Users. Please respect that many of these easements are on land owned by families whose property the easement crosses. It’s not public property. We respect the privacy of the people whose property our easement crosses and ask you do the same. The easements that are title owned by the Bureau of Reclamation are no different. It’s still private property—not authorized for public use.

Unauthorized entry on private property is legally considered trespass. This includes all trespass—whether for walking a dog, riding a bike, dumping of trash or debris, or camping.

GVWUA maintains our easements to assure reliable delivery of irrigation water to our users. We take pride in keeping our easements well-kept and free of encroachments.

Canals can be dangerous and they are not patrolled! Don’t risk the safety of yourself or others by trespassing on our easement!

The canal roads are not monitored! Should something happen while on our easement, it could take valuable time for authorities to find you to administer aid.

Due to continued disregard for our posted signs and gates, GVWUA will begin taking legal action against trespass.

What We Do

GVWUA is responsible for the flow of water in its canal, in its laterals and through its headgates.

All parts of delivery systems (ditches, laterals, pipelines, pumps) beyond the headgates are the responsibility of landowners.
