Water allocation increased for MID growers

April 26, 2022

Merced Irrigation District growers will receive an increase in their surface water allocation as a result of the most recent late-season storm. Today, the MID Board of Directors voted to raise the allocation of Lake McClure surface water for MID Class 1 growers to 1.67-acre-feet per acre. The decision was made after the latest storm brought fresh rain and snow to the Sierra. Previously in March, the MID Board had adopted an allocation of 1.1-acre-feet per acre, based on the dry winter weather and available water supply in Lake McClure.
