Abstract

The U. S. Bureau of Reclamation proposes to irrigate about 64, 000 acres, largely in southern Minidoka County north and west of the Snake River, with ground water from 175 wells; 13, 650 additional acres would receive surface water pumped to a high-line canal from Lake Milner. More than 20,000 additional acres nearby is being developed by private capital. Completion of the Federal reclamation project will more than double the irrigated acreage in the North Side Division of the Minidoka Project. The area to be irrigated with ground water is at the south-central edge of the Snake River Plain adjacent to project lands that have been irrigated for many years with Snake River water.
