    FOR SAFETY'S SAKE: The water provided is for Irrigation Use Only!


    FOR MAINTENANCE OR LINE LOCATION: Call (208) 466-0663 for questions concerning items such as pressure, leaks and design specifications or location of buried irrigation system main lines. Call at least 2 working days before you dig... IF YOU DO NOT CALL, YOU ARE RESPONSIBLE FOR ALL DAMAGES!


    FOR ASSESSMENTS AND WATER RIGHT INFORMATION: Call the Irrigation District office ... (208) 466-7861 Fax: (208) 463-0092


    BENEFITS TO THE URBAN WATER USERS: Within design limits, pressurized irrigation water is delivered between 40-60 psi (equivalent to the pressure of a municipal system). Home sprinkler systems should be designed not to exceed 5 to 7 gallons per minute per watering station. Debris is filtered from the water to 1/16 of an inch. The District suggests using sprinklers that accommodate 1/16 of an inch and larger, secondary filters should not be necessary.


    Nampa & Meridian Irrigation District will perform all repairs to the main system, and the cost of those repairs will be included in the assessments for operation and maintenance of that system. Individual landowners will be responsible for their own sprinkler system, i.e. lawn and garden sprinklers.


    Irrigation water can be scheduled for intermittent use 24 hours a day, 7 days a week depending upon need and supply. By spreading the usage across a 24 hour period, the pump station and use of irrigation water will be more efficient. Nampa & Meridian Irrigation District is responsible for equitable water allotment to the main system lines.


    Nampa & Meridian Irrigation District will handle all the assessments and collections of funds for the operation and maintenance of the irrigation system. Your land may have water rights in another Irrigation District, if so, you will receive a tax notice from both; however, Nampa & Meridian Irrigation District is responsible for all pressure urban irrigation system issues.

    The average cost to irrigate urban lots within our entire pressurized system is expected to be less expensive annually than a system, which relies totally on more expensive domestic water for its irrigation. At present time the approximate cost for the urban system is $90.00 per lot, based on a ΒΌ acre lot.


    Nampa & Meridian Irrigation District has several years of experience operating pressurized urban irrigation systems. Depending upon availability of water, systems will turn on approximately 15 April and will shut down approximately the first week of October of each season.
