Our Mission

For nearly 100 years, The Middle Rio Grande Conservancy District has worked to make the Middle Rio Grande Valley a good place for farmers to irrigate and a safe place for humans and animals to call home. The MRGCD operates, maintains, and manages irrigation, drainage, and river flood control in the middle valley. The MRGCD also works in cooperation with other local, state, and federal agencies to protect the environment, wildlife, and endangered species. Through the MRGCD’s motto to ‘Keep the Valley Green’, thousands of people get to access the Bosque through MRGCD right-of-ways and enjoy nature in the heart of large metropolitan areas.
