Tonopah Irrigation District ("TID" or "The District") is a political subdivision of the State of Arizona. TID is an irrigation district formed pursuant to Title 48 Chapter 19 of the Arizona Revised Statutes. The District was formed in 1977 for the purpose of seeking an allocation of Central Arizona Project Water. TID received a CAP allocation in 1983 and began deliveries in 1986. TID relinquished their long term CAP allocation in 2004 as part of the Arizona Water Settlements Act. TID is presently supplied with physical CAP water from CAP's "excess water" supply. The irrigation pumps served by the District are owned and operated by the District's customers, as are the other agriculturally related facilities.
The District began providing electrical service to its service area in 1987 to provide power for predominantly irrigation pumping loads, with a small amount of other agriculturally related loads. TID owns no electrical facilities. Electric power is served to nearly 7,500 acres.
TID is located primarily in western Maricopa County, approximately 50 miles west of Phoenix, between Buckeye and the Harquahala Valley. The District has a service area of approximately 40,000 acres.
TID is governed by a three-member Board of Directors elected by freeholders of property within TID's boundaries.
