Dates of existence


Located southeast of Oliver, the Black Sage Irrigation District was established in October 1947 by landowners who took over a private irrigation system owned by Alex MacDonald. Comprising 177 acres, the District provided irrigation water to approximately 12 landowners in the Black Sage road area. Much of the irrigation system was upgraded though grants under the Agricultural and Rural Development Agreement (ARDA) between 1965 and 1980. The District was absorbed by the Southern Okanagan Lands Irrigation District (SOLID) in late 1987.
