The Modesto Irrigation District is asking the community to get involved in our fight to keep our water local.
Every 50 years, MID, together with our partner Turlock Irrigation District, is required to relicense the Don Pedro Project with the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission or FERC. It’s an open, collaborative process involving water districts, cities, residents, tribes, as well as federal, and state agencies. We took input from all these parties to conduct Tuolumne River-specific science and put together a comprehensive plan. Unfortunately, some resource agencies have ignored science and put forth their own plans that would devastate our economy and threaten our water supply. The water grab continues and we are going to fight Until The Last Drop.
