Grants Pass Irrigation District Water Resources & Conservation Plan

NEWTON conducted a 5-year study to determine irrigation needs, availability of water, delivery methods, and the future role of the 56-year-old district in an urbanizing environment. The work included evaluating fishery issues as they related to the District's diversion dam and distribution system. NEWTON assisted the District with development of a water conservation plan; analyzed distribution alternatives and costs; completed public workshop presentations; and prepared a report. NEWTON helped facilitate meetings of the 18-person Oversight Committee, coordinated interactions between special interest groups, and federal and state agencies, negotiated permit conditions with agencies and environmental groups, and testified at public hearings.
