ECBID MISSION STATEMENT
The mission of the East Columbia Basin Irrigation District is to provide reliable Columbia Basin Project irrigation water to East Columbia Basin Irrigation District lands at a sustainable cost for landowners.
The District operates 86 miles of delivery canals, 527 miles of laterals, and 917 miles of drains and wasteways, as well as 53 pumping plants.
The District transitioned into operations and maintenance in 1969 and is led by an elected five-member Board of Directors.
The East Columbia Basin Irrigation District is a critical and proactive stakeholder in the regional economy, focused on providing continuous, reliable and affordable water to the landowners and communities we serve. We strive to work collaboratively with diverse agencies and groups to equitably provide the most benefit to the greatest number of constituents possible. Voluntarily, we are actively implementing a federal groundwater replacement program which focuses on providing a critical solution to a regional environmental and economic problem that is negatively affecting our local communities and landowners within the District and CBP.
