The proposed project will rehabilitate a steel flume that was lined in the 1990's under a project
financed with water development funds. The lining is deteriorating. The proposed project will
serve to help assure delivery of water to the irrigators below the flume.
RECOMMENDED LEGISLATIVE ACTION:
The WWDC recommends the project be incorporated in the Rehabilitation Program at Level III
with an appropriation of $87,000. The financing plan has two options, with the irrigation district
selecting its preferred option prior to beginning construction. Funding option one is a 50% grant,
50% loan, which is amortized over thirty years at 6.00% interest. Funding option two is a grant
of $43,500 for 100% of materials with the district responsible for the balance of project expenses.
