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
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.
