 50. PROJECT:Horse Creek Conservation District Canal Improvements
LEVEL:New Application
SPONSOR:Horse Creek Conservation District
LOCATION:Goshen County

The Horse Creek Conservation District serves 98 irrigators and 10,179 acres. The current assessment is $22.00 per acre.

Horse Creek Conservation District is interested in replacing approximately 8 open laterals (approximately 18,500 lineal feet) into 10" - 18" plastic pipe. Preliminary designs and cost estimates are needed for this work. The district intends to have the WWDC purchase the pipe and other materials. The district intends to hire an engineer to complete final designs and specifications, and supervise construction during Level III.

The proposed Level II project will inventory and assess the condition of the canals and appurtenances, survey canal alignments and grades, evaluate the feasibility of needed repairs, prepare preliminary designs and cost estimates for reasonable alternatives, and explore financing options.

The WWDC recommends that the project be incorporated into the Rehabilitation Program at Level II with a proposed appropriation of $30,000.00.
