Open Lateral Canal Inventory: Salt River Project, Maricopa County, Arizona, Lower Colorado Region

Author(s): David J. Gifford

Year: 2013

Summary

The Salt River Project (SRP) is a U. S. Bureau of Reclamation owned project operated under a long term agreement with the Salt River Valley Water Users Association, known today as SRP. The 100 year old historic water delivery system consisting of dams, canals and distribution laterals are continually updated and modernized to facilitate on-going water deliveries to the Salt River Valley (Valley). Operations and Maintenance (O&M) as well as rapid growth in the Valley will continue to have impacts on the historic system constructed in the late 19th and early 20th century.

The following inventory was completed as a component of the 2001 SRP Programmatic Agreement (PA) (Advisory Council for Historic Preservation 2001). The PA was initiated in 2000 in consultation with Reclamation, SRP, the Arizona SHPO and the Advisory Council for Historic Preservation to preserve and /or mitigate portions of the historic lateral distribution system. After 10 years in existence the PA is being revised and updated. This inventory is part of the process to identify significant historical elements of the lateral canal system that should be preserved for the future.

This is a revised report.
