The East Columbia Basin Irrigation District announces the 2022 irrigation season will end for all East Columbia Basin Irrigation District deliveries on October 20, 2022.

The final day to order water delivery changes will be October 18th. The last changes will be made on October 19th. On October 20th ditchriders will close all farm unit and water service contract turnouts as they begin to drain the canal system.

The East Columbia Basin Irrigation District will soon scale back ditchrider service from 6 days to 5 days per week. This is done annually as irrigation water demand declines. Full Saturday service will be provided through September 3rd. After that date, daily ditchrider service will be available Monday through Friday. The Moses Lake and Othello Watermaster Offices will be closed on weekends beginning September 10th. Emergency phone numbers for after-hours and weekend trouble calls are available on the ECBID website, www.ecbid.org/contact/. Contact numbers are also listed under “East Columbia Basin Irrigation District” in the Moses Lake, Warden and Othello telephone directories, and in the District’s recent newsletter.

Questions regarding Saturday deliveries and the shut off date may be answered by calling the Main Office at (509) 488-9671 or submitted by email to info@ecbid.org.
