System Improvement Plan
Purpose of a System Improvement Plan
By piping COID’s two main canals, the District could conserve 82,752 acre-feet of water. This is a significant amount of water – equal to an increased flow of 276 cfs in the Upper Deschutes River the winter months.
Throughout our history, local, state, and federal agencies, agricultural and conservation groups and other stakeholders, have supported Central Oregon Irrigation District’s efforts to responsibly manage our water supplies. Their support has been invaluable. We plan to continue to work closely with these groups and many, many others as we implement our System Improvement Plan.
