Many properties around Boulder are located near irrigation ditches. Staff and select local ditch representatives will be on-hand at this open house to answer frequently asked questions such as:
- Who owns and maintains ditches?
- Why does a ditch flow only some of the time?
- Why do ditch companies remove trees?
- What can be expected during ditch maintenance?
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.
