2002 LEGISLATIVE REPORT
Active Projects

 57. PROJECT:Hidden Valley
LEVEL:New Application
SPONSOR:Midvale Irrigation District
LOCATION:Fremont
PROGRAM:Rehabilitation

PROJECT INFORMATION:
The Midvale Irrigation District would like to convert approximately 7 miles of an open, unlined canal known as the Pilot Canal, into a gravity-pressurized pipeline serving the Hidden Valley area. Hidden Valley is located along the Wind River at the top end of Boysen Reservoir. The proposed system would include a small earthfill dam and regulation reservoir in the natural drainage below P36.8 wasteway.

When full the reservoir would provide a 2 day supply for Hidden Valley under full demand. The gravity pressurized system would serve approximately 2,200 acres and would conserve an estimated 13,000 acre-feet of water once flood irrigation is converted to sprinkler irrigation and conveyance efficiencies are increased.

RECOMMENDED LEGISLATIVE ACTION:
The WWDC recommends the project be incorporated into the Rehabilitation Program at Level II with an appropriation of $100,000.
