Irrigation Ditch

    Home    ›   Departments   ›   Infrastructure  ›   Housing

On Nicola Mameet IR No.1, there is a network of irrigation ditches running through numerous fields around the Shulus area, which have been utilized for generations. The Lower Nicola Indian Band has provided assistance to members working together to coordinate and maintain these ditches for a water supply for agriculture.

Annual maintenance may include burning and clearing of the ditches, ditch user registration, and coordination of water schedules.

Update for 2020 Season:

Given the COVID-19 pandemic, LNIB’s service provisions for the irrigation ditches has been put on hold. See the memo below for more information.
