So that we can maintain the reliable flow of water to our growers, we establish easements around irrigation facilities.

Required Easements and Rights-of-Way

  1.  25 foot wide easement for irrigation pipelines, pumplines, spill lines, drain lines and subsurface drainage lines, centered on the pipeline.
  2. 40 foot wide easement for irrigation drainage ditches, lined or dirt bank, centered on the ditch.
  3. 15 foot wide easement from road and canal rights-of-way for irrigation drainage pipelines whose center line is less than 12 1/2 feet from the right-of-way.
  4. 10 foot wide easement from rights-of-way for pipelines within developments that are parallel to and adjoining the street right-of-way line behind the sidewalk. If the same area is to be occupied with other utilities (joint utility trench) 15 feet is required.
  5. 50 foot square easement for drainage and irrigation pumps, centered on the pump. A 20 foot access easement from a public road to the pump is required.
  6. 12 foot wide access easement to control structures and access manholes. Access easements to control structures shall be free of encroaching structures and consist of an all-weather surface.
  7. Easement for canals are determined by the width needed to accommodate the standard roadway and embankment width (CS 127) on both sides of canal, plus the canal width necessary to convey the designed flow rate.

Irrigation Pump and Well Standards Easement

  1. A 20 foot access easement is required for access to well site.
  2. A 50×50 foot Grant of Easement to the District is required for the well site.
  3. A chain link fence enclosure may be placed around the pump and drop pole and built to District Standards.
  4. The well shall be located off the bank of the District canal.
  5. An easement appropriate for appurtenant pump and well facilities shall be provided.
