Subdistrict No. 1 Conservation Programs

Welcome to the Subdistrict No. 1 Conservation Practices Home Page!

Subdistrict No. 1 was formed to take action and help to reduce the amount of land being irrigated with groundwater, to encourage the recharge of surface water diverted into Subdistrict No. 1, to restore groundwater levels in the aquifer within the Subdistrict No. 1 boundaries and to prevent land erosion.

Subdistrict No. 1 has collaborated with numerous conservation groups, agricultural groups, local, state, and federal agencies, and landowners to develop a set of strategies to implement voluntary incentive based programs to reduce irrigation water use and restore the critical balance between supply and demand.


The following conservation programs are available to Subdistrict No. 1 constituents.


Sub District No. 1 SB22-028 Supplemental Incentive Program
This incentive program will be offered concurent to the Second Round of Senate Bill 22-028 Funding
Conservation Reserve Enhancement Program


The Well Purchase Program will be offered again in 2024.   

Application will be posted once program is avialable.


Thank you for your interest in water conservation!
