July 1st Monthly Meeting Cancelled

The July 1st monthly meeting at Syringa Hall has been cancelled.

Our next meeting will be Monday, August 5th.


Mudslide Repair Update

The canal has been repaired.  A half allotment of water has been turned on this morning.  A full allotment of water should be available by tomorrow (June 16th) so shareholders can catch up on their irrigating.

Moss is already bad, so we will de-moss on Monday, June 24th. Please close headgates by Sunday night, June 23rd. The full allotment of water should be ready again by Wednesday, June 26th.

Remember nothing should be in the ditch to impede water flow or on the bank to hinder SCDC passage.

Thank you for your patience


Mudslide Repair Notification

To all Squaw Creek Ditch Company (SCDC) Shareholders:

Unfortunately, Nature delivered the SCDC a mudslide this week that needs to be repaired as soon as possible given its extensive damage. The slide is located on the Ditch just above the West Dam. This area of the Ditch is extremely hard to get to. The slide completely filled the West ditch of debris that has since been cleared. As a result of the slide, the Squaw Creek Ditch bank in this area is nearly gone. Unless repaired, it is our fear that any additional stress on the remaining bank will result in a breach of the entire ditch. In order to complete the repair and to maintain the integrity of the entire ditch, we will need to shut off water to the ditch near the middle of this upcoming week (June 11-12). This will allow for repair of the site. The water will be off approximately a week.

We know this is an extremely bad time of year to be shutting off water – but we have little choice. We cannot control Nature nor can we let this repair wait. If you have any questions, please let us know by phone or email – 208-991-2649 or squawcreekditch@gmail.org.


2024 Ditch Water Start Date

The ditch water will be turned on Monday, April 15th. It will take a few days for the ditch to fill.  As is normal, there could be some debris in the water.

2023 Water is On

Update: The water has been turned on. From LeAnn Carlsen: 2023 Water on April 26-27. Rain and mountain run off slowed projects and water startup. There were 3 rock slides in the canyon, the flume received some repairs, a new culvert and headgates were replaced, and the canal was cleaned end to end. Rick Link, his crew and volunteers worked tirelessly to get the canal ready. Here’s to a successful season!
