 53. 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
Level II 82 1998 II $30,000   2000
Level III 16 1999 II $131,600* 2002
*100% grant for invoiced materials. The sponsor is responsible for all other project costs.

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 Horse Creek Conservation District has received a total grant appropriation of $246,600 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.

In 1999 the sponsor replaced the highest priority ditch segment with pipe. The engineer is designing construction for 2000 and subsequent years for construction by district forces. The Horse Creek Conservation District plans to rehabilitate approximately 8 open laterals (about 18,500 lineal feet) with plastic pipe and liners over several years.

No legislative action is required.
