The NRD is certifying all irrigated acres in the District. Allowed new irrigated acres may be limited for land within the District's designated Hydrologically Connected Area (HCA). Certification of new irrigated acres outside the HCA must still be completed, even though there are no acreage limitations. Learn more about certification of irrigated acres.
