March 1, 2023


These Terms of Use govern access to, and use of, the website of Orchard City Irrigation District (“OCID”,“we,” “us,” and “our”). These Terms of Use constitute a legal agreement between you (referred to herein as “you,” “your,” or “user,”) and OCID. As a condition of using the website, you agree to be legally bound by all the terms and conditions contained herein. Please read these terms carefully. We are willing to allow you access to and the use of the website, and to provide related information, services, functionality, and materials, only on the condition that you accept and agree to all of the terms contained in these Terms of Use. If you do not agree with these Terms of Use, you are not granted permission to access or use this website and you are instructed to exit the site immediately.

Please note that we reserve the right to change the terms and conditions stated herein by posting revised Terms of Use on our website. Your continued use of the website following any change will be deemed acceptance of any change to the terms and conditions of these Terms of Use. Accordingly, please review these Terms of Use on a periodic basis.


By using this website, you represent and warrant that you own real property within OCID, you pay annual assessments to OCID and you are entitled to a portion of water stored by the OCID in the Fruitgrowers Reservoir.


By making a Submission/Listing to either rent out your water or acquire water, you agree that no Submission/Listing to us via the website or any other form will violate the rights of any third party, including copyright, trademark, privacy, publicity, or other personal or proprietary right(s).

Agreements for Temporary Transfer of OCID Water

In providing access to this website, OCID is providing ONLY a forum for owners of real estate within OCID to post their interest in temporarily renting their rights in irrigation water to others owning land within OCID or expressing an interest in temporarily acquiring a right to another party’s OCID water.

  1. OCID recommends that prior to completing any water rental agreement, the parties confirm with OCID the current percentage allocation in effect and the volume of water in c.f.s. that is then applicable to the OCID acres being rented. Each user of this website acknowledges, understands and assumes the risk that the OCID water available under any water rental agreement into which they may enter may increase or decrease after the date of the agreement. Each user of this website understands and acknowledges that the OCID board of directors, in its sole discretion, may from time to time change the percentage of water allocated to each OCID Acre and that such change may effect the volume of water available under any OCID water rental agreement. Each user of this website further acknowledges and understands that all OCID water is subject to minimum water order requirements. As of March 1, 2023, any water order MUST be for at least .25 cfs daily and MUST continue for at least two consecutive days.
  2. OCID will not be responsible for negotiating, memorializing or enforcing any terms of any agreements reached between the parties. All terms and conditions of any rental agreement to temporarily transfer the use of OCID irrigation water are strictly between the parties. By using this website, the parties expressly discharge and release OCID, its board of directors, its agents and its employees from any liability for defects in the lease agreement and from any obligation to interpret or otherwise enforce the lease agreement. The only document that the parties should submit to OCID upon reaching their lease agreement is the “notice of assignment of ocid water rights for the 2023 irrigation season”. a copy of that form is available for downloading or printing on this website.
  3. OCID encourages all parties to seek the assistance of legal counsel in the negotiation, preparation and execution of any water lease agreement reached.
