What we’re doing
Long before coronavirus, Merced Irrigation District placed a significant focus on the health and safety of our community and our employees.

To help prevent the spread of coronavirus, MID has temporarily closed its front office to the public and is encouraging the community to pay bills and order water deliveries by phone or online. The District has taken significant actions to disperse our employees in support of social distancing efforts while ensuring water and power operations continue uninterrupted.

MID has a long and proud history of partnering with our community. From supporting local agricultural education to promoting renewable energy, we have consistently been there. Until further notice, MID has curtailed involvement in any public events or community outreach.

MID intends to provide uninterrupted service while keeping you informed. Please visit this page often for important updates and follow MID on social media. If you have not already done so please click  opens in a new windowhere to sign up for MID newsletters.
