MVID’s By-Laws and Rules & Regulations were amended in April 2018.  You can see the by-laws here and the rules & regulations here or request copies from the Secretary.  MVID has also adopted a policy that requires installation of detectable marking tape and locating wire when new facilities are installed (tracer wire policy), which you can see here

In 2020, MVID resumed offering surplus water to non-members and members who have irrigable land that is not being assessed. You can download an extra water agreement here. Please call the District Secretary with any questions.

In November 2020, MVID’s Board of Directors adopted a fee schedule, which will take effect on January 1, 2021. You can see the schedule here or request a copy from the Secretary. We strongly recommend that you review MVID’s rules and the tracer-wire policy and contact the district office before you initiate any land division or boundary line adjustment within the district. 

Please be sure to close your personal valve no later than April 15th each spring. 

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 members, Project partners and interested community members with general and Project information, background documents, maps and contact information.
