The District mows most of its 1,000 miles of canal rights-of-way approximately four times per year. This quarterly mowing rotation provides for operational access to canals with minimal cost to taxpayers. Tractor-mowers maintain the top of the canal bank and arm-mowers maintain the side slope of the canals.
The District will not mow private property or trim around fence lines or guardrails. Fertilization and irrigation of the rights-of-way is not provided. Additionally, some areas may be inaccessible to equipment and crews. Due to personnel safety, these areas may not be maintained. For more information or questions click here to contact us.
