Mohave Valley Irrigation and Drainage District

By Hubble Ray Smith | Daily Miner

Central Arizona Project’s proposed purchase of farms within the Mohave Valley Irrigation and Drainage District has raised a few eyebrows among local officials.

Mohave County Assessor Jeanne Kentch sent a Nov. 28 letter to the Central Arizona Water Conservation District explaining the county’s opposition to the permanent transfer of any Colorado River water rights and allocations dedicated to the irrigation and drainage district.

CAP seeks to transfer 5,538 acre-feet of water a year from the district.
