 81. PROJECT:Stewart Creek Pipeline
SPONSOR:Stewart Creek Irrigation Company
LOCATION:Lincoln County
Purpose Chapter Session Account Appropriation Due Date
Level II 10 1994 I Hold* 1996
*A block appropriation of $29,000 was made for all hold projects.

The company serves 15 shareholders, and about 1100 irrigated acres. The project has consisted of studying the feasibility of repairs needed on the sponsor's gravity pipeline system. The system was installed in 1961 and is in poor condition. The annual maintenance costs of this system are now exceeding reasonable levels.

The Level II study found that approximately 500 feet of the pipeline needs to be replaced. The rest of the system can be regulated through the repair of existing pressure relief valves and the addition of relief valves to balance the delivery of the limited supply of water available to the system. The company must form an irrigation district if it wishes to pursue Level III funding.

No legislative action is required on this project.
