Elephant Butte Irrigation District has moved up the surface water release date for the Central and South Valleys. They will start the release the morning of Monday, May 28. Diversions are planned to begin the morning of Tuesday, May 29.
The District emphasizes the importance of farmers placing water orders as early as possible to facilitate efficient watering. Delays in placing surface water orders will reduce the opportunity to receive water. Remember, members can now order online through the Farmer Services tab on the EBID website at www.ebid-nm.org. Farmers may also place water orders by contacting the EBID Water Records Department at 524-8003 from 7:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. Monday through Friday. Please refer to the EBID website for important updates during the irrigation season.
