Sangre de Cristo Trinchera Diversion Canal Restoration

Category: Irrigation Infrastructure
Organization: Trinchera Irrigation Company
Date Approved: September 2009
Basin Funds: $114,000
State Funds: $150,000

This project replaced 2,125 linear feet of the Sangre de Cristo Trinchera Diversion Canal concrete lining, restoring the canal to its original capacity of 100-120 cfs and addressing water administration issues caused by upthrusts, slumps, and cracks in the 30-year-old lining. By restoring maximum capacity to the Canal, the Trinchera Irrigation Company has benefited from increased operational efficiency, reduced groundwater use, and maximal use of Mountain Home Reservoir.
