Secondary A Canal Drop Structure Repairs 2019 - 2020
In early Fall 2019 the Western Irrigation District (WID) will be tendering a contract for the upgrade of a critical structure on Secondary A canal, within Town limits. The legal location is SW 15-24-25 and the physical location is near the intersection of Westridge and Wildflower Roads.
This infrastructure work will consist of demolition and replacement of concrete walls on the downstream end of the existing drop structure. The walls are cracking and failing due to poor drainage and frost heaving.
Upon completion of new wall construction, granular backfill and riprap will be imported and placed to promote proper drainage and prevent erosion.
Contract work will be conducted within the District right of way by an experienced contractor under the site supervision of the WID’s consultant, MPE Engineering Ltd.
Construction work schedule will be in accordance with Town Bylaws.
