The Middle Rio Grande Conservancy District is an independent government agency that provides irrigation water to 11,000 irrigators that deliver water to 70,000 acres of cropland.

The conservancy district provides flood control for valley areas and owns and manages 30,000 acres of bosque from Cochiti to Socorro. The district can levy property taxes, charge fees for its services and impacts tens of thousands of tax payers in the valley.
