SEVEIN TAPS WATER MORE THAN 1,000 FEET below the surface filtered for decades through multiple layers of basalt and replenished from the Blue Mountain snowfall. No expense was spared in developing one of the finest agricultural water delivery systems in the Northwest. Three deep basalt wells are interconnected with five reservoirs and over ten miles of buried mainline to provide a total capacity of over 11,000 gallons per minute and give redundant capacity to the water right of 7,500 GPM. State-of-the-art telemetry controlled variable-frequency speed pumps, booster pumps, and motors are designed to deliver 5 GPM per irrigated acre to each vineyard property site. Property ownership includes specifically identified water rights to each property lot.
SEVEIN WATER ASSOCIATION
The water delivery system and infrastructure are owned in common by SeVein Water Association. Membership is based on the number of water right certificate acres attached to each property. The Association was formed to own, operate, and maintain the wells, pumps, motors, and portions of the water delivery system. The Association is responsible for delivery of water to each owner’s property line and retains easements throughout the property in order to provide maintenance and capital improvements on the water delivery system and primary road network. A Board of Directors, elected from SeVein’s property owners, manages the Association including determination of monthly assessments to cover electricity contract charges, operation and maintenance of the water delivery system and primary roads.
