The project will be funded in part from a $4million grant from the Natural Resources Conservation Service (NRCS) Agricultural Water Enhancement Program (AWEP). The proposed pump station is a cost-share project that will be managed by the irrigation district. The grant was awarded under the Idaho Water Resource Board’s (IWRB) AWEP agreement with NRCS.
Plans call for constructing a pump station on the north bank of the Snake River about 7 miles west of Burley, Idaho; and a 12-mile pipeline to will deliver water north to the irrigation district lands.
It is anticipated that the project will reduce the reliance on groundwater from the aquifer, while also improving irrigation efficiency.
