Dr. Morrison Canal shut down due to bank failure

The Dr. Morrison Canal on the Pine River Indian Irrigation Project (PRIIP) experienced a bank failure on the night of Thursday, July 31 that has resulted in the canal being shut down. BIA Irrigation Department staff, with support from the Tribe’s Water Resources Division, is working diligently to repair the section of bank so water deliveries to both tribal and non-tribal lands can be resumed as soon as possible. BIA anticipates work being completed by Saturday, Aug. 9. Questions and concerns should be directed to BIA Supervisory Civil Engineer Vickie Begay at 970-563-9484.
