Flathead Indian Irrigation Project

ITRC was contracted by the US Bureau of Indian Affairs to develop a modernization plan for the Flathead Indian Irrigation Project. The modernization plan encompassed all twelve “units” that make up the large, sprawling irrigation project. The plan focused on the following goals:

  • Enable USBIA to better control and measure flows with less uncertainty
  • Improve service with increased water delivery reliabilty, flexiblity and equity
  • Streamline processes for decisions to aid employee retention and training
  • Decrease unnecessary diversions
  • Decrease operational spill, thereby improving river quality
