What is an irrigation ditch?
Irrigation ditches are manmade channels that deliver water from natural sources to homes, farms, businesses, industries and other uses. Most irrigation ditches divert water from natural creeks and rivers and bring it to other areas.
For questions or issues regarding irrigation ditches, please contact Douglas Dunn, Water Resource Specialist at 303-441-4295. In an emergency, please call 911.
