Leupp Superintendent Annual Reports, 1919
Can you help
Na rat ive. Leupp Indian School & Agency Leupp , Arizona Section V Field Irrigation . There is no water for field irrigation on this jurisdiction. There was a project here at Leupp that contemplated the impounding of the flow of Canyon Diablo, syphoning it under the River and using 1t on irrigable lands on both sides of the river between here and Tolchaco. This scheme was never developed. Now the whole area contemplated to be used is covered by a projected storage dam for a power plant the first unit of which would use the drop at Grand Falls. Extensive surveys have been made and a record of the River flow is being kept. The plan is entirely feasible and the construction would not be excessively costly. The storage of flood waters at different points might be practicable but would have to be worked out by the Irrigation Engineers. I believe water could be stored in the Lakes basin twelve miles north of Leupp in sufficient quantity to use in develop ing a large farm across the river. A dyke about one- quarter to mile long would be necessary.
