The little-scale irrigation works is one of the most important infrastructures of agricultural production in China. Following the social vicissitude, the frame and management mode of the small-scale irrigation works are different. Some of them are controlled by private, and some projects have been handed to peasantry individual or ally, local water user associations by the property reform in some regions in our country. However, the rest of them have been operated by village collective. It's difficult to judge the efficiency of governance. In order to obtain the management information and actual effect of governance, the article designed the evaluation index system of governance performance for little-scale irrigation works, selected weighting multi-index synthetic evaluation model, ascertained the weight of indicator using ANP (analytic network process), and evaluated the governance performance of little-scale irrigation works taking advantage of social evaluators. The empirical analysis of the small-scale irrigation works in W village was given at the end of this paper using the above evaluation index system and method constructed. As a result, the property reform could increase the performance of the works obviously, especially the efficiency. But because of some reasons, such as the price of water and so on, the works meet some difficulties, and the foreground was not good. The governance of the small-scale irrigation works is a systemic and full-scale action. In order to improve the performance, we must consummate corresponding system, increase community social capital, and creat some conditions favoring irrigation works management.
