Ensuring water for Central Oregon for generations to come

As part of Central Oregon Irrigation District’s (COID) plans to modernize infrastructure and conserve water, construction of Phase I of the Pilot Butte Canal Piping Project is anticipated to begin in late September 2020. Substantial construction work, drilling, blasting, and installation of pipe will begin after irrigation season shut off on October 1.

The piping project is part of COID’s System Improvement Plan to implement water conservation practices and support sustainable agriculture. During the irrigation season, COID loses up to 50 percent of water to evaporation and seepage from canals and laterals. Piped canals mitigate these losses and conserve a significant portion of the water.
