NO SPRAY AGREEMENT
If you do not want the District spraying our easements and rights-of-way on your property, you need to sign a “No Spray Agreement” with the District on an annual basis. The forms must be completed and in the District office by December 31st of each year. If you would like a “No Spray Agreement” please contact the District by phone at 541-535-1529 or by email at email@example.com and the form can be emailed, faxed for sent regular mail.
There is no need for you to sign a “No Spray Agreement” if you do not have any District facilities on your property.
Since our procedures have not been reviewed in quite a while, TID will be reviewing our protocol regarding future spray applications and the types of products used.
The annual irrigation bills were due April 1, 2019. A $25 late fee has been assessed on all past due accounts.
Our office is open Monday through Friday from 7:00 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. Our phone number is 541-535-1529.
