The District operates an augmentation plan for use by basin water users. Operating the plan within the District boundaries offers unique ability to have a whole basin management concept work to benefit water users and administrators.

The 2002CW334 augmentation plan decree is available to all water users seeking to irrigate out of priority and require augmentation water. The water provided by the District is decreed for such uses and made available to users for a nominal fee.

The District provides augmentation water for over 200 members.
