About Us

Let us introduce ourselves

The North Unit Irrigation District is located in the Deschutes River Basin and supplies irrigation water to nearly 59,000 acres of farmland in Jefferson County. North Unit Irrigation District is a quasi-municipality under contract with the U.S. Bureau of Reclamation. In addition, the District is a part of the Deschutes Basin Board of Control, a consortium of eight irrigation districts and municipalities that collaborate on issues facing Central Oregon and water users.
