Draft Environmental Assessment
Roger's Mesa Water Distribution Association Slack and Patterson Laterals Salinity Control Project, Delta County, CO

Western Colorado Area Office Home   Environmental Documents 

The proposed action would pipe approximately 49,700 feet of existing unlined earthen canals along the Slack and Patterson laterals within the RMWDA irrigation system. The existing Slack and Patterson laterals consist of their respective turnouts from the Fire Mountain Canal, a flume on each lateral and splitter boxes for diverting flow to individual users. High-density polyethylene (HDPE) pipe would be installed to replace the existing earthen laterals. Concrete junction boxes would be constructed at intervals to facilitate pipeline maintenance. A pipeline would be installed and placed within the existing canal right-of-way, except in minor sections where the pipeline would extend outside of the existing canal alignment.
