 79. PROJECT:North Strawberry Canal
SPONSOR:North Strawberry Canal Company
LOCATION:Lincoln County
Purpose Chapter Session Account Appropriation Due Date
Level II 15 1996 II $50,000 1998

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 has prepared an inventory of the system, and identifies needed improvements. The recommended facilities include replacing canals with pipelines, new intake structure and controls, headgate replacement, and related facilities. Total Level III project cost is estimated at $1,052,000.

In order to obtain Water Development Commission funding, the sponsor formed an irrigation district and submitted an application for Level III construction funding to the commission. This application was considered during the November, 1998 Commission meeting. They did not meet WWDC criteria which establishes a maximum state investment of $500 per acre.

No legislative action is required.
