Impact

More than just numbers

We’re making a difference.

We’re working to enable and accelerate the modernization of irrigation infrastructure with multiple irrigation districts in Oregon. Once modernized, the result of this work will be trillions of gallons of water conserved annually, thousands of miles of stream improved for fish, MWh of energy created as well as conserved, and millions of dollars in economic development. The following statistics reflect the potential collective impact of implementing these projects in nine of those districts.

  • 579
    miles of canals modernized
  • 38
    MW RENEWABLE ENERGY GENERATED
  • 59,650
    MWh/year ENERGY CONSERVED
  • 557
    CFS WATER SAVED
