Snowshoe Thompson No. 1 Pipeline
Document Type
NOE - Notice of Exemption
Document Description
The project involves placement of a 36-inch diameter pipeline within a 3,100-foot section of the existing earthen Snowshoe Thompson agricultural irrigation ditch, which conveys water from the West Fork of the Carson River to the Indian Creek Reservoir and users in Diamond Valley. The purpose placing this section of the earthen ditch within a pipeline is threefold: 1) to reduce erosion from the earthen ditch and associated input of phosphorous into the Indian Creek Reservoir, improving water quality; 2) to allow for winter operation of the ditch, and; 3) to enhance stability of this section of the ditch, which has experienced failure as a result of excess river flow overtopping the ditch.
