MID gives management raises, hikes water rates to growers

Last week, I wrote about the Merced Irrigation District and the wage increases that management gave themselves. MID turned off water to the growers last year a full month before normal, because of the drought. They then offered to sell water to growers that they had obtained from another water district. And now, they are asking for a $5 per acre foot increase in water rates for farmers who use MID.
