2022 Crop Declaration Letter & Form

Crop Declaration Letter 2022

Dear Water User:

 

As you may be aware, the Solano Irrigation District (SID; District) Board of Directors adopted an Agricultural Water Allocation Policy in 2015.  For the 2022 irrigation season the District will be assigning an allocation of water to each agricultural water user for use during the irrigation season.  The adopted policy is enclosed for your reference.

The policy was adopted by the Board on November 17, 2015 and requires that water users submit a crop declaration form, in order to receive a water allocation for the 2022 irrigation season.  Customers may not receive water if they do not submit the form on time. It is imperative that you return a completed crop declaration form by February 15, 2022 otherwise you may not receive a water allocation until after the regular board meeting in July 2022. It is crucial that we receive your crop declaration form by the deadline in order to provide the appropriate reporting and water allocation for each customer. If you are aware of the acreage in which you will be irrigating but are still unsure of which crop you will be irrigating, by the deadline, please at lease submit the acreage. We can adjust your crop use at a later date.

*Customers have the option to fill out and submit this form online using the below link.
