Bloomfield Irrigation District

Irrigation Season Began April 1st

Remember: to ensure a good flow it is very important to clear your laterals of debris and obstructions.

Work with your neighbors. Share information you have with everyone on your line. It is important for all to know where their headgate and valves are located. If there is a break in your line this information is key in being able to shut down the water in a timely fashion reducing the chance of water damages
