Cub River Irrigation Company Projects

 

Cub River Irrigation Company is located in southern Idaho and northern Utah. FCE has provided general engineering assistance on the below projects. All work has met contracted design and construction schedules. 

Middle Ditch Pressurized Irrigation System

FCE assisted in planning, funding, design, and construction of a pressurized irrigation system using the Middle Ditch as the major source of supply. Funding was obtained from the Idaho Board of Water Resources ($1 million) and the Utah Board of Water Resources ($1.3 million). In addition, a $150,000 grant was obtained from the Soil Conservation District in Franklin County, Idaho.

Lewiston Pump Project

FCE assisted in the planning, funding, design, and construction of this pump project. It included the design of three pumping stations and 58,000 feet of irrigation pipeline to put approximately 3,500 acres of land, in and around Lewiston, under a pressurized irrigation system fed by the East Canal. Funding was obtained from the Idaho Board of Water Resources ($500,000) and the Utah Board of Water Resources ($1.6 million).

West Lewiston Pressurized Irrigation

FCE assisted in the planning, funding acquisition, design, and construction of a pressurized irrigation system covering approximately 4,500 acres in southern Idaho and northern Utah. The pump stations and 13.5 miles of pipe were modeled using WaterCAD. This model was used to optimize the design and perform predictions on changes to the system, including future scenarios. Funding was obtained from the Bureau of Reclamation ($1 million) and the Utah Board of Water Resources ($1.9 million).

Middle Ditch Water Conservation and Renewable Energy Project

This project consists of replacing approximately 6.5 miles of open canal with five miles of 36-inch PVC pipe and installing a hydropower facility. The project will provide the agricultural users with a more reliable source of water, conserve about 2,800 acre-feet of water annually, reduce operational costs, and generate up to $100,000 in annual energy revenue. Funding has been obtained from the Bureau of Reclamation ($1.5 million) and the Utah Board of Water Resources ($2.6 million).
