Parma basin will reduce sediment in irrigation water

IDAHO – Getting dirt out of the water upstream will help irrigators and river cleanliness downstream, farmers and canal company representatives said as work on a custom-designed sediment basin began April 6 north of Parma, Idaho.

Funding sources include $500,000 in matching funds from NRCS, and contributions from Farmers Cooperative and Black Canyon irrigation districts; Southwest Idaho Resource and Development Council, the City of Parma; the Canyon County Board of Commissioners; the Lower Boise Watershed Council; the Canyon County Soil Conservation District; and NRCS in-kind contributions for best management practices.
