MVID | Instream Flow Improvement
Methow Valley irrigation District

The MVID West Canal will be operating to Gunnar’s Spill until the end of September.  The water level in the canal will be much lower than it has been in the past.  As MVID members below Gunnar’s have converted to wells, the District has had to cut the diversion at the head gate.

You will need to make modifications if your intake is too high relative to the level of the water in the canal. more>>

The Instream Flow Improvement Project is the result of many years of negotiations between MVID, regulatory agencies, and non-profit conservation groups. The current Project aims to assist MVID in serving all of the shareholders with adequate water, while minimizing the effects on ESA-listed salmonid fish.

This site is intended to provide MVID shareholders, Project partners and interested community members with updated Project information, background documents, maps and contact information.
