An irrigation district is a corporation that operates under the authority of the Alberta Irrigation Districts Act whose primary purpose is to convey and deliver water through irrigation works, divert and use quantities of water within the terms of its licence, and to construct, operate and maintain irrigation works.

The infrastructure that provides water to the irrigation districts is comprised of approximately 7,943 kilometres of conveyance system*, of which 339 kilometres are owned and operated by Alberta Environment and Parks.

Municipality's portions were calculated by District Data Input Tool (DDIT) Irrigated Acres Database and not by the Irrigation District service areas depicted in the map.

Reservoir storage is reported in acre feet.

*based on 2017 irrigation data.
