Conservation Projects

On-Farm Efficiency

The Deschutes River Conservancy collaborates with irrigation patrons to improve water use efficiency by piping private lateral canals.

This process provides landowners with pressurized water, enabling the transition from traditional flood irrigation to more efficient systems like sprinklers or drip irrigation. By aligning with broader district canal piping projects, this program not only optimizes water usage on individual farms but also contributes to larger conservation goals. It reduces the overall need for water diversion from rivers, thereby supporting the health and sustainability of the Deschutes River.
