Irrigation Aqueduct – Mountain Home ID

Description

The WPA constructed or conducted improvements to this irrigation aqueduct in Elmore County near Mountain Home. A 2016 article in the Mountain Home News suggests that the canal and aqueduct indicated on the map dates to the 1890s, so the WPA work may have been repairs or improvements. However, no wooden structures such as that pictured are visible from satellite imagery of the canal, so the site may we be elsewhere in the Mountain Home vicinity.
