Over the next 20 years, FCA’s goal is to support, accelerate, and enable the modernization of 10,000 miles of water delivery systems in the Western United States for the benefit of agriculture, environment, and community. To do this work, we need your help!

We work with people from a broad set of disciplines to support irrigation modernization efforts. Do you have expertise in water infrastructure? Maybe you’re developing a new method to measure farm production. Or maybe you’re excited about applying water quality data in a new way. We’d love to hear from you about your work, your outcomes, and where you see opportunities to partner. Reach out to us at with the Subject: Move the Needle

In addition, our growing team of over 30 strategy consultants, irrigation advisors, technical professionals, and public policy experts believe that everyone can win – farmers, rivers, and communities. If you’re passionate about achieving benefits for both environment and agriculture, we want to hear from you. If a posted opening doesn’t quite fit your skillset and you believe joining our team will make you excited to come to work every day, please send your resume to with the Subject: General Inquiry

The Colorado-based Colorado Project Manager will work with FCA staff and contractors to help accelerate irrigation modernization efforts on behalf of irrigation districts, ditch companies, and agricultural producers across Colorado. An ideal candidate would enjoy and excel at building relationships with a broad range of community members, and they would be equally comfortable talking with a ditch company representative and meeting with an elected official. They would also be passionate about developing solutions that benefit both agriculture and the environment.
