Irrigation Water

Irrigation water is distributed to all agricultural farm lots from irrigation wells owned by well owners’ associations.  Variable costs are shared by the water users. A one-time fee will be assessed to install an individual lot automatic schedule valve to the irrigation main line. Each lot will receive abundant water on schedule 3 times per week. The schedule duration is more than adequate to irrigate all but 1 acre of each lot. Recommended sprinklers are Nelson Big Guns in the center of the irrigated land trimmed by smaller Nelson sprinklers in each corner. Nelson also provides many other agricultural watering solutions.

Potable Water

Water is supplied by a Water District. The water source is 800-foot-deep wells engineered for the Water District communities. The sweet artesian water is elevated to the surface by the hydraulic pressure of an enormous underground lake that originates to the east at the Dragoon Mountains. St. David Springs has received a certificate of assured water supply from the Arizona Department of Water Resources (ADWR).

Farm Lot Fencing

All agricultural farm lots are to be fenced with pipe fencing. The GoBob pasture fencing and gates is the best and most economical fencing available. We carry a few panels in stock.

  • The four-rail fence will contain animals and is an efficient common fence between farm lots
  • The 5-rail fencing is excellent for arenas, round pens and surrounding even the largest cattle.
  • The best finish is to allow the fence to rust. The result is a maintenance free and rustic look.

Animal Control

Eliminate horse visiting over a common fence rail.

We recommend HorseGuard ribbon on the top rail to prevent livestock visiting over the rails.

The HorseGuard brown color selection compliments the rusted GoBob pipe fence. The HorseGuard ribbon is easy to add to your fence.

Access to the San Pedro River

All River Bend lots that border the Bureau of Land Management land may access the Bureau of Land Management land from a common property line. The River Bend Ranch interior agricultural lots may enter the Bureau of Land Management land from the west end of McCommas Lane.

The farm lots at the west end of Escalante Crossing and Preserve are adjacent to 50 acres of Preserve. The Escalante Crossing Preserve Homeowners may access the Preserve at the Northwest corner of Escalante Crossing. The Preserve land is private and gated and available only to Escalante Crossing residents and their guests. The private land extends west beyond the river to the west bank of the San Pedro River.
