Colorado Master Irrigator

Sugar Beets Under Sprinkler Irrigation

Agricultural producers under the Colorado Master Irrigator (CMI) program learn new tools and strategies to help sustain or preserve Ogallala aquifer levels in ways that are profitable for their operations. The Colorado Water Conservation Board, along with other Federal, state, and local partners, is supporting the CMI program through a Colorado Water Plan Grant. This collaborative and innovative program encourages voluntary water conservation and efficiency using an interactive class format and peer-to-peer exchange. Graduates of the CMI program are also eligible for special discounts on irrigation equipment as well as special cost-share funding opportunities.
