Ditch Riders are the heart and soul of the Eagle Point Irrigation District. The Ditch Riders monitor the many miles of ditches, drains, canals and laterals, and ensure that all patrons get their water. They are also charged with enforcing the strict rotation and scheduling system. The rotation and scheduling system ensures that all patrons are treated fairly and that everyone gets their fair share of water on schedule. Your ditch rider is the first person you should call if you have a water problem or question.
Not sure who your ditch rider is ? Your rotation schedule(Mailed in March) has your ditch riders name and number at the bottom . If you would like another copy give the office a call (541) 826-3411 or send you can send in a request on the homepage.
Our equipment operators (Dennis) keep many miles of ditches, drains, canals and laterals clean and up to par through out the year. You may also see him riding along with the ditch riders maintaining the delivery system.
