Welcome Bonvue Irrigation Association Members:

The Bonvue Irrigation Association was originally formed in 1947 with the stated objective of delivering low cost irrigation water to its subscribers, and continues to meet this objective today. Membership in the Association enables local residents to obtain and utilize renewable surface water for non-potable purposes for a fraction of the cost of treated groundwater obtained from our local water utilities. Participation in the Association is both environmentally sound and economically smart!

The membership of the Association is comprised of people just like you, and the elected Board Members and Officers are entrusted by you to ensure that this valuable resource will continue to be available now and into the future. Board Members are remunerated only in the yearly compensation of their respective shares, and they devote considerable time and energy to ensuring that this resource ends up on your lawns, under the feet of your children and grandchildren, and in your flower and vegetable gardens.

This is OUR Association, and it is through our membership dues that the Bonvue neighborhood remains as attractive and pleasant as it is. It is up to us, each of us, to use our resources wisely and fairly, thus ensuring that our homes will continue to look as sharp and inviting as they do!

News and Events

May 15, 2017 The 2017 irrigation season is underway. Preliminary tests of the system suggest that the lines are patent and relatively free of debris other than the removal of a few hapless rats. There are some carry-over problem spots from last season as addressed by the Board at the general meeting last month, but these are either currently in process or are on the docket for resolution. Remember, we are a volunteer organization, so approach your volunteers with thanks and appreciation, and be wary of those that disguise themselves as advocates solely for the purpose of fanning the flames of discord!
Stay tuned for the latest news.

Flow Status

Water is measured via the gauge at the weir on the north end of the channels near the headgates. Date, time, and value as documented are noted below, and the relative change since the previous measurement is noted in the picture. Flow status will be updated on a daily basis.

Please note the addition of a new "critical" category. Critical suggests that flows in the ditch are insufficient to provide for reliable irrigation in any circuit, and the use of pumps without safety switches is not recommended. Critical status also implies that BIA officers or the ditchrider have been in contact with Aggie Ditch to advise them of the problem.

Purple: Excessive, >8 units
Green: Excellent, 7-8 units
Blue: Good, 6-7 units
Orange: Low, 5-6 units
Red: Critical, <5 units
