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

What's Happening on The Ditch?


We have been working hard to clear the ditch bank. Great Job Guys!

Please work with your neighbors to keep all lateral  lines functional. Lateral lines are property owners responsibility to maintain. It helps to form an association.

Water is a precious commodity


 New Mexico's very viability as a state is dependent on its scant water supply. It will be up to all of us to help keep our rivers healthy , our reservoirs from shrinking and our cities and farmers with water. Please do your part and conserve when you can. Work together as a community to insure we have less stressed crops and healthy stock. Irrigation systems
