Additional Details:
This view shows a headgate on the Emmett Irrigation District Canal. This canal irrigates 20,000 acres of the finest fruit land in the world. The Payette River shown winding away in the distance carries an inexhaustible supply of water. At times this stream has a flow of 16,000 second feet, or water enough to thoroughly irrigate nearly 1,000,000 acres of land, giving the lands of the Payette Valley and abundant water supply.
