The Middle Rio Grande Conservancy District website provides data about water use and evaportation, maps, project information and district news. The MRGCD helps irrigate 70,000 acres of cropland in the middle Rio Grande Valley of New Mexico. The District was formed in 1925 to alleviate flooding, to reclaim waterlogged land by constructing drains and provide irrigation to farmlands in the middle valley. Its boundaries stretch 150 river miles from Cochiti to North Boundary of Bosque Del Apache Wildlife Refuge, running through Sandoval, Bernalillo, Valencia and Socorro Counties. It operates more than 1,200 miles of canals, laterals and drains, which are used to convey water to and from cropland. The District is funded by water service charge and property assessment on the benefited lands within its boundaries.
