 49. PROJECT:Horse Creek Conservation District Rehabilitation
SPONSOR:Horse Creek Conservation District
LOCATION:Goshen County
Purpose Chapter Session Account Appropriation Due Date
Level III 38 1998 II $115,000* 2002
*100% grant for invoiced materials. The sponsor is responsible for all other project costs.

The Horse Creek Conservation District received a grant appropriation of $115,000 for 100% of invoiced materials accepted by WWDC. The labor and equipment, engineering design and inspection, and all other project costs are financed by the district.

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. The district proposes to have the WWDC purchase the pipe and other materials. The district also proposes to install the materials with district personnel and equipment. The district intends to hire an engineer to complete final designs and specifications, and supervise construction during Level III.

The Level II project inventoried and assessed the condition of the canals and appurtenances, surveyed canal alignments and grades, evaluated the feasibility of needed repairs, prepared preliminary designs and cost estimates for reasonable alternatives, and explored financing options.

The WWDC recommends that the project be included with the existing Level III project in the Rehabilitation Program, with a 1999 appropriation of $131,600 bringing the total appropriation to $246,600. The financing plan includes a grant of $131,600 or 50% of the estimated project costs. The grant portion will be used to purchase construction materials. The remaining 50% will be provided through the installation of the project components by the district using district personnel and equipment.
