Yuma Mesa Irrigation Drainage District Reaches Agreement

The Yuma Mesa Irrigation and Drainage District has reached an agreement with the Central Arizona Groundwater Replenishment District for a short-term pilot fallowing program. The Yuma Sun is reporting this is not a water transfer but rather a voluntary fallowing of 1500 acres over three years with a possible three year extension beyond that. The saved water will not be sent to Phoenix, but will be preserved in Lake Mead, helping to increase the supply and elevation of the reservoir.
