 74. PROJECT:Sidon Canal Rehabilitation
SPONSOR:Sidon Irrigation District
LOCATION:Big Horn County
Purpose Chapter Session Account Appropriation Due Date
Level III 206 1995 II $1,060,000* 1998
*50% grant, 50% loan (4%, 10 years)

The Sidon Irrigation District serves about 50 irrigators and 12,000 acres of irrigated land. The sponsor originally applied for Level III funds to replace the Marchant Wash crossing. However, upon further examination, it became apparent that an inventory of the entire system would be more appropriate.

The 1993 Legislature approved Level II funding to assess the condition of the canal and appurtenant structures. The study was completed in 1994 and presented an inventory of the existing water supply system, identified needed improvements, and estimated costs of those improvements. A prioritized rehabilitation plan was developed. Conceptual designs and cost estimates were provided for six structures in critical need of improvement.

The district is presently seeking the necessary court approvals to incur the project debt. Construction could begin in the fall of 1996.

No legislative action is required on this project.
