Data were obtained from 61 agricultural districts within the Mid-Pacific Region of the USBR regarding the level of water delivery service provided to users, water pricing, associated characteristics, and plans for modernization.  A Flexibility Index (FI) was developed to characterize the degree of water delivery flexibility provided by each district.  Based on results, a program for technical assistance to irrigation districts was developed and implemented.
