Document Description
The proposed project is the annexation of Madera Ranch into the Madera Irrigation District (MID). The annexation territory comprises 10,891 acres of agricultural land. No land disturbance or any other physical activities would be necessary to accomplish the proposed annexation. The physical change the project would facilitate is the substitution of available surface water from MID for groundwater currently used to support agricultural uses at the project site. The District would not be required to install any new facilities. The District is currently capable of delivering water to the annexation parcels through existing conveyance facilities. The current owner of the annexation parcels has requested and consents to the proposed annexation.
