2020 Board Meetings

Our Mission

The Grants Pass Irrigation District, located in Oregon’s Josephine and Jackson Counties, was organized in 1916 to provide adequate irrigation water for lands in the Rogue Valley. The district is dedicated to operate and maintain a distribution system that economically and environmentally enhances the community.

2020 Irrigation Season Shutdown
