Farms and other agricultural water users ensure the availability of fresh, locally produced food to both rural and urban communities.
Irrigated agriculture also provides ancillary social benefits through boating, fishing, hunting, and other recreational amenities.
Irrigated agriculture is the backbone of Oregon’s economy, supporting a variety of high value crops sold globally.
Agricultural water suppliers are on the forefront of conservation and are always seeking innovative ways to stretch our resources.
