The Water Conversion contracts are a means to allow landowners to voluntarily and irrevocably convert their water from irrigation use to domestic use. Those landowners choosing to convert are relieved of future annual charges from the Yuma County Water Users Association. Conversions benefit the San Luis Area by increasing the amount of water available for domestic use.
