Document Description
The proposed Project consists of a main canal off-line, operational reservoir and related infrastructure. The operational reservoir would manage up to 365,000 acre-feet of water annually having a capacity of 2,100 acre-feet. A proposed intake structure off the east side of the All-American Canal Reach would direct Colorado River flows along an intake channel to the operational reservoir at up to approximately 1,500 cubic feet per second via gravity flow. Water temporarily stored in the reservoir would be delivered via gravity flow through an automated gate outlet into the East Highline Canal for delivery downstream. The purpose of the Project is to augment IID’s current levels of water management and operational flexibility while creating an additional tool to assist in meeting system and on-farm conservation program goals.
