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 water
to be pumped in order to serve some irrigated areas. 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 Level II study, now underway, will inventory the system, identify
needed improvements, and suggest rehabilitation alternatives. Conceptual
designs and cost estimates will be prepared for the recommended alternative.
