Alternate Parcel Irrigation Agreement (ALTPNC)
In accordance with the Irrigation Districts Act (Section 25), the WID has approved a new policy for Alternate Parcel Irrigation. This will allow water users to use existing Irrigation Acres on an alternate parcel, which they may or may not own. The alternate parcel must be land classed and support the number of acres applied for. Each application will be reviewed for practicality by staff and is subject to Board approval. This agreement must be applied for on a year to year basis and has a fee which must be paid at the time of application submission.
Yearly Irrigation Assessment Notices are mailed in August to the OWNER of the Irrigation Acres who are fully responsible for payment of their Yearly Assessment Notice; due December 31 of every year. WID does not take responsibility for agreements made outside of this application. Outside agreements are between the owner and the alternate parcel receiver.
Note: New Application Fee is $400.00 + GST per receiving parcel; Renewal is $150.00 + GST.
Application due date is the 2nd Friday of March. the 2023 due date is March 10.
Late Fee of $300 will apply to ALL applications received after the 2nd Friday of March.
This application is only valid for the water season referenced on this application. The applicant MUST apply EACH YEAR by the specified due date for an alternate parcel irrigation agreement.
As per WID Policy ADM # 37 and following IDA Sec 25(5)(b): a current and acceptable Land Classification must be on file at WID's office at the time of the application, or must be attached to the application.
