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.
