Water (irrigation and drainage) and it’s regulation by the government is part of farming life in the river valley. We’re here to give you a voice, lend a hand and find solutions.
The WID has just purchased the Tokul Creek Water Right from Weyerhaeuser!!! Check out this article in the SnoValley Record.
The WID was awarded a grant from the WA State Department of Ecology to start a water bank – a mechanism to bring willing buyers and sellers together to lease water rights.

Please tell us about drainage issues on your land so we can create an accurate inventory.
If you have drainage needs, please help us by mapping your property. Please tell us about your ditches, culverts, pumps, gates. Tell us if the waterways and ditches on your property are in the right place, and whether they’re functioning or not. And tell us about any farmable ground that is impacted by poor drainage.
To get your property mapped, we offer these choices:
- Use this online tool to map your property in detail. Many can complete an accurate, detailed inventory in about 15 minutes. This is the preferred method.
- Let us help you use the on-line tool. Come to the SVWID office in Carnation, and we’ll walk you through it. To set up an appointment, email firstname.lastname@example.org.
- Draw on paper maps. If you prefer to work in paper maps, email email@example.com, and we can discuss the best way to do that.
The information collected in this inventory will be used to get a better understanding of the full drainage network, the problems, and the most effective solutions. Please share this link with your neighbors in the district. We’re aiming for full participation so we can build an efficient and equitable project plan.
