The Booth-Orchard Continuing Farmers are a group of wells located on lands that were historically irrigated by the Booth-Orchard ditch.  The surface water was sold off of these lands in the late 1970’s.  As a result these wells have formed an organization with the sole purpose of getting a decreed augmentation plan through water court.  AGUA currently provides all augmentation water for the Booth-Orchard group.  Although the two organizations work closely together, Booth-Orchard and AGUA are independent of each other. 

Don Thorne is the President of the Booth-Orchard Board of Directors, and Don Thorne is also the Booth Representative to AGUA.
