Project Highlights

  • Conducted a Level 1 feasibility study including water right reviews, seepage testing, and funding options for potential improvements to 31 miles of irrigation canals that were suffering from significant water loss.

  • Paired funding from the Wyoming Water Development Office (WWDO) and the Colorado River Basin Salinity Control Program to perform a more in-depth Level 2 analysis which also included the Wall Dam and Reservoir.

  • Created a six-phase plan to replace the canals with piping to eliminate seepage, evaporation, and evapotranspiration along the extended distances between ranch lands.
