Marc Schuil’s August 31, 2021 phone interview with Gene Kilgore, manager of Corcoran Irrigation District.
- CID has approximately 43,000 acres of which approximately 39,000 are farmed at any one year. Typically ½ with a winter crop and ½ with a summer crop. Kilgore says most farmers in his district do not double crop. CID typically delivers 65,000 acre feet of water via pumped well water. (Approximately 1.5 acre feet pumped well water per acre). CID has not yet taken a firm position on safe yield; however, when pressed, Kilgore said he estimates the safe yield for his district will settle in around 1 acre foot per year. (Note: other districts have estimated 6” to 9” of safe yield – however, Kilgore was pretty confident of his number of 1″ of safe yield). CID typically delivers 1 acre feet of surface water. The main source of this surface water is Kings River water, however, CID has access to Friant water (purchased from others – CID is not a contractor) and Kaweah water. Kilgore sometimes referred to the surface water as “summer water”. CID had summer deliveries until August 25th of this year when other districts did not. Kilgore recommends planting no more than 70% of the land to permanent plantings and that Corcoran’s heavier soils take less water than sandy soils. CID is a large district with a majority of the acreage in open ground. There will be opportunities to rent open ground for the CID water delivery rights.
