Pioneer Irrigation District is a non-profit irrigation district providing irrigation water to 34,000+ acres in the Canyon County and extreme Western Ada County area in Idaho. Established in 1901, we are proud to be a part of the Treasure Valley's rich agricultural history and are continually looking for the best ways to manage water needs now and for the future for both agriculture uses and the ever growing residential population in the Treasure Valley.

Irrigation Water Deliveries Begin About April 7th
Irrigation water is scheduled to begin flowing in Pioneer Irrigation District canals on April 1st, but District water managers say abnormally high temperatures and a quickly diminishing winter snow pack means the weather over the next several months will help determine whether or not Pioneer will have to make reductions in deliveries later on in the season.
Pioneer has water rights to approximately 61,000 acre feet of storage water in the Boise River reservoirs system of which around 24,600 acre feet of water was carried over from the 2014 irrigation season. “Spring rains would really help by delaying demands on the system, but ultimately we are going to have to rely on our patrons to be as conservative as possible in their water use to help make our storage water last as long as possible,” said Pioneer Superintendent Mark Zirschky.
“At this point, just how the irrigation water supply situation unfolds largely depends on Mother Nature,” Mark added. The District plans to provide the latest water supply information on its internet web site: www.pioneerirrigation.com.

Remember when you need to order water please contact your ditchrider. If you do not know who your ditchrider is please contact the office at 459-3617.
Ordering water properly is imperative to our day to day operations. If Pioneer does not know you need water we will not be pulling it from storage. If you take water without ordering it prior you will be taking water from someone who did order it down the line. If you have any questions please contact us. Thank you!
