News & Information



Every year is different in agriculture, and the same can be said for Farwell Irrigation District. One major change that will be notice is the 20.8-1.7 lateral. Thanks to a Grant recieved, that lateral is now buried into pipe and will help contribute greatly to the conservation of water. Additionally, there is some new personal since last year. Kevin Curlo has been promoted to Water Master for the Main Canal, and Bryce Royle was hired to replace Kevin on Ride 7. Also, Thomas Jerabek was hired on Ride 4. These changes will a great asset to our team and overall operations.

The District staff would like to remind you that if you want to install a pivot on land that is served by the District that you must meet with the Board prior to December of every year for approval. Applications can be picked up in the office and landowners need to meet with Mike Spotanski prior to the meeting. The application for transferring acres must be submitted in January to the State.

Please keep in mind that if you are doing any digging in fields to contact the office to find out where pipe has been buried.

If you have any questions or comments, please don't hesitate to contact the office, we appreciate hearing from the landowners and tenants. Our goal is to do the best job we can serving you.

We look forward to providing water service to you in 2014 and to help keep track of state and federal issues, we suggest you look at the following web sites:
