Tumalo Irrigation District is a community of people united in their respect for the critical role sustainable agriculture plays in the region; the land and the water resources that nourish that land; and the wildlife that depends on access to healthy, native habitat.
Tumalo Irrigation District is dedicated to improving water flows in the Deschutes River, Tumalo Creek, and Crescent Creek; restoring and protecting native habitat; ensuring reliable water supply for agriculture and recreation; and supplying glacial water to cool the warming Deschutes River.
For nearly 120 years, Tumalo Irrigation District has been the steward of critical water resources in Central Oregon, serving more than 660 families, managing 80 miles of piped and open canals, and irrigating 8,100 acres.
