Founded August 14, 1888

Alta Irrigation District was formed in August 1888 by means of a general election
after the Wright Act, which became law on March 7, 1887. It was the first such district to become operational. The Alta District incorporated the holdings of the "76" land and water company, which was purchased after the passage of a bond issue. The name "76" was the brand name of Thomas Fowler who sold his brand and holdings for stock in the "76" land and water company. The first directors of the five precincts were, T.L. Reed, John E. Toler, E.E. Giddings, J.D. Vannoy and P.Y. Baker. The district has over 700 miles of ditches and pipelines bringing water to 130,000 acres of rich and productive farmland within the Dinuba, Orosi, Reedley and Traver areas.
