 49. PROJECT:Green River Supply Canal
LEVEL:New Application
SPONSOR:Green River Irrigation District
LOCATION:Sublette County

The Green River Canal has been in operation for many years and delivers water to irrigators with water rights that date back to the early 1900's. Water is delivered to 5,830 acres from Cotton Wood Creek and the Green River. Currently the canal is unable to carry its entire water right of 84 cfs. The canal suffers from delivery, conveyance, erosion and seepage problems. The primary diversion is from the Poole Slough off of the Green River. The condition of Poole Slough diversion has deteriorated to the point that it is hazardous to operate. Additionally, the Green River Canal water is transported through Cottonwood Creek. It is believed that there are significant losses suffered through this stretch of the canal. Due to the length of the canal this would have to be a two year study focusing on solutions to the problems facing the Green River Canal Irrigators.

The WWDC recommends the project be incorporated into the Rehabilitation Program at Level II with an appropriation of $200,000.
