Approximately 1,700 landowners are served by the Mesa County Irrigation District

MCID’s boundaries encompass approximately 2,300 acres; about 900 acres are irrigated. MCID’s water rights are allocated to the acreage within the District’s boundary. When land ownership changes, the water stays with the land. Water assessments are collected by the Mesa County Treasurer as part of the property taxes levied on irrigated lands within the District.


We will turn the water on April 7th - 10th, 2021
