History of CCID

What began as an ambitious canal system in the mid-1800’s has grown to become one of the largest irrigation districts in the Central Valley. The Central California Irrigation District services over 143,000 acres of agricultural land comprising over 1,600 farms, predominantly from small farming families which have lived here for several generations.

Over the past 60 years, we have been dedicated to our mission statement of distributing water to consumers in an orderly, efficient and equitable manner. In particular, we emphasize maximizing the potential of our water resources through extensive conservation measures and loans and grants for our farmers’ conservation projects.
