2014 marks the third consecutive dry year for California. This year has been hit with severe, record breaking dry conditions. On January 17, 2014, Governor Brown's Emergency Drought Declaration brought further attention to one of the driest periods in California's history.

Due to such dry conditions, MID will operate in an extremely conservative manner this irrigation season. Communication, cooperation and coordination between MID and our customers will be the key to a successful irrigation season.

This page is intended to be a source of information and a resource for MID irrigation customers and those interested in following the drought's impact on MID.
