GENERAL MANAGER

JAMES IRRIGATION DISTRICT

(San Joaquin, CA)

Salary open DOQ. James Irrigation District is located about 30 miles southwest of the City of Fresno and is comprised of roughly 26,000 acres, of which 22,000 acres are currently irrigated. It is a public Irrigation District providing agricultural water to growers within its boundaries. The District is governed by a five-member Board of Directors elected at-large by its landowners (there are about 100 landowners and 30 growers within the District’s area). The FY 2019-20 total budget is $8.7 million, including a CIP of $830,000, with 16 staff.

A system of 65 well pumps, 26 booster pumps and 100 miles of canals and pipelines distribute irrigation water to growers’ orchards, vineyards and fields. The District has five sources of water supply: 1) a U.S. Bureau of Reclamation Central Valley Project water service contract, 2) San Joaquin River Schedule 2 settlement contract, 3) Kings River water rights entitlement, 4) Kings River flood water, and 5) groundwater from District-owned wells. In addition to rights to groundwater within the District service area, the District also has a deeded groundwater right to certain lands east of the Fresno Slough Bypass. The District’s current annual water demands are approximately 65,000 acre-feet and, at this time, the District has enough water sources to meet the needs of its growers.

The General Manager also serves as Executive Director for the James Groundwater Sustainability Agency, manages Reclamation District #1606, and oversees the James Resource Conservation District.

Desire a bachelor’s degree in engineering, geology, hydrology, public/business administration or other related field, and substantial relevant work experience. An advanced degree would be a plus. Experience working with and/or knowledge about agricultural water users is important. California experience preferred.
