 58. PROJECT:North Strawberry Canal
LEVEL:New Application
SPONSOR:North Strawberry Canal Company
LOCATION:Lincoln County

The North Strawberry Canal supplies irrigation water to 3200 acres of flood irrigation and sprinkler systems. The present diversion structure is located at the mouth of Strawberry Canyon. The system requires numerous pumps at selected points along the system to complete the transmission of the irrigation water to certain sections of the irrigated lands. The canal users would like to replace the canal with a pipeline thereby converting the system to a gravity pressure system to eliminate ditch losses and pumping costs, and reduce maintenance costs.

The proposed Level II study will serve to inventory the system, identify needed improvements, and consider rehabilitation alternatives. Conceptual designs and cost estimates will be prepared for the recommended alternative.

The Commission recommends the project be incorporated into the Rehabilitation Program at Level II status with an appropriation of $50,000.
