Please join us for an update on upcoming irrigation district improvement projects on June 19 at 6 pm at the Terrebonne Elementary School in Terrebonne. Staff will share the 20-year capital plan, benefits, and timelines, beginning with the first phase in the Smith Rock area. The meeting will be an excellent opportunity to meet the COID staff and ask questionsRead more

"COID’s new capital improvement plan includes piping around the historic stretch. The alternate route may go along 18th Street in public right of way." The section of canal mentioned in The Bulletin editorial is part of Phase Two of COID's capital projects plan. At present we are working to finish planning and funding Phase One, which is located in another area. Our Phase Two plans for the section of canal referenced will go through a public and transparent process to decide how conservation measures will be attained to meet Endangered Species and conservation obligations. It is our intent, over the next two years, to work with neighbors in the area on alternatives for conveying our utility.Read more

Trivia: How many miles of canals does COID operate and maintain between Terrebonne, Powell Butte, Redmond and Bend?Read more

Deschutes River Conservancy is looking for volunteers for Deschutes Brewery's anniversary party on June 30! Sign up and give a hand.Read more

COID is committed to conservation measures to generate a more reliable water supply for the region. The amount of water saved through COID piping and other conservation measures are shared with North Unit Irrigation District and other junior water right holders to ensure farmers have the water they need, even in dry years. The district is using a variety of tools including piping, water leasing, sharing, transferring of water rights and reservoir management.Read more

Officials from both COID and Deschutes County have been working for over a year with landowners and community partners to find a solution to a homeless camp on COID's property in Redmond. Redmond's Chief of Police, Dave Tarbet, said that his office gets a large volume of calls about problems in the camp, and that repeat offenders have caused trouble in town. "We get called out [200] to 300 times a year," Tarbet said. "Some people that we deal with the most come into town and commit crimes. It's been a thorn in our side." This week COID employees and Deschutes County inmate crews have been continuing cleaning efforts on the land. Clean up is estimated to take a full year and cost $200,000.Read more

You know it's June when the canals are flowing! Summer is just about here.Read more

Canal safety reminder: Irrigation water is non-potable water and should be considered unsafe for human consumption. Do not use irrigation water for drinking or other domestic purposes such as bathing, showering, dishwashing, cooking or maintaining oral hygiene. Water delivered through the District’s canals and delivery systems is for irrigation purposes only.Read more

Matt Searfus, with the Homeless Leadership Coalition, says the property owners have been more than patient, given the trash, vandalism and illegal activity that's taken place in recent years. "Anybody who owns land and has someone staying on it illegally reaches a point where they would say 'I've done all I can, it's time for someone else to deal with this'."Read more

How long have you been a COID patron? Tell us in the comments.Read more

COID is saddened for the passing of longtime patron Gary Timmerman who passed away last month. He was raised a rancher, and after his service in the U.S. Army National Guard as a cook, he returned to the industry as a cattleman, running a ranch in California. Gary was an accomplished pilot and auctioneer.Read more

COID is committed to seeking and implementing energy conservation practices while protecting the environment. COID is proud to partner with Energy Trust of Oregon and their work together to save millions of water annually.Read more

“Proponents of tacking a historic designation onto a section of a Central Oregon Irrigation District canal are back.” A historic destination would prevent COID from being able to pipe and conserve water. “Piping saves water, lots of it, for the Deschutes. That’s good for the spotted frog, for fish, for plants and other animals. And that’s good for the river and for Central Oregon.”Read more

Once COID is fully piped the opportunity for pressurized waters could eliminate the need for 90% of the pumps patrons use to irrigate their farms? Good for farmers and good for environment.Read more
