About Central California Irrigation District
Since 1951, CCID has been committed to the responsible stewardship of water resources and providing quality water service to over 1,600 central valley farms. Our average farm size is 85 acres, and are mostly small family businesses that have resided here for several generations. Our farmers produce tens of thousands of tons of produce from dozens of different crops, including tomatoes, corn, lettuce and more.
We pride ourselves on our water conservation efforts, which ensure that our water use remains sustainable. CCID makes extensive investments into conservation programs such as automation, canal lining and spill reduction that prevent our precious resources from being wasted. Furthermore, we provide both low-interest loans and grants to our farmers towards their own on-farm conservation projects.
