 45. PROJECT:Goshen Irrigation District Water System
SPONSOR:Goshen Irrigation District
LOCATION:Goshen County
Purpose Chapter Session Account Appropriation Due Date
Level II 81 1999 II $75,000   2000
Level III 96 2000 II $1,726,000* 2004
*100% grant for invoiced materials. The sponsor is responsible for all other project costs.

The Goshen Irrigation District received a grant appropriation of $1,726,000 for 100% of invoiced materials purchase for materials to automate the water delivery system, rehabilitate farm turnouts, and implement seepage control measures, such as canal lining and placing ditches into pipe. Generally the construction will be performed with district resources at district cost. Engineering, permitting, and other project costs will be borne by the district.

When constructed, the improvements will reduce seepage losses in canals and laterals and enable GID to better account for water spilled back to the North Platte, precipitation gains, runoff into the canals, and deliveries to the Gering Fort Laramie Irrigation District in Nebraska.

Design of the highest priority ditches to be placed into pipe and the first automation locations was completed in the fall of 2000. Pipe and other materials were procured and construction is underway. The district has provided a schedule of improvements for design and materials procurement purposes for the next three years. Construction should be completed prior to the 2004 irrigation season.

No legislative action is recommended.
