 92. PROJECT:Owl Creek Master Plan
LEVEL:New Application
SPONSOR:Owl Creek Irrigation District
LOCATION:Hot Springs County

The Owl Creek Irrigation District's water supply is made up from a combination of Owl Creek direct flow water, storage water from Anchor Dam and pumped water from the Bighorn River. Owl Creek Irrigation District has three separate areas known as upper and middle, which serves 9,282 acres and the Lucerne area, which serves 3,997 acres. The upper and middle areas are dependent largely on direct flow supplies and storage from Anchor Dam. The Lucerne area delivers pumped water from two lift stations through approximately 33 miles of conveyance system. The purpose of this study is to conduct a watershed evaluation of the Owl Creek drainage with emphasis on storage possibilities for the upper and middle areas and potential water conservation measures for Lucerne.

The WWDC recommends the project be incorporated into the Rehabilitation Program at Level I with an appropriation of $150,000.
