Welcome to the South Board of Control Website

Thank you for visiting our district website!

Irrigation Season is approaching quickly.  A turn on date has been set for April 6th, 2021 for the South Canal.  The New Gem and Ridgeview Districts are looking at a reduced allotment due to the low water in the Owyhee Reservior.  The normal allotment is 4 acre feet per acre of water right and the tentative allotment has been set for 3 acre feet per acre of water right.  This will be reassessed if things improve with spring runoff and rains. 

The River Pumps will be turned on to start filling the A, B & C Canals on April 9th.  This is the Old Gem Waters.  Old Gem will receive its full 4 acre feet allotment.
