Project Name: Lilac Ridge Water Management Project
Location: Sections 31 and 32, T155N, R44W; Section 36, T155N, R45W; Section 5 and 6, T154N, R44W; Section 1 and 2, T154N, R45W
The Middle-Snake-Tamarac Rivers Watershed District (MSTRWD) in an effort to improve flood protection within the Judicial Ditch (JD) 14 sub-watershed proposes the construction of the Lilac Ridge Water Management Project which consists of an off-channel impoundment located primarily in the north ½ of Section 1 in Viking Strip Township along with channel grade stabilization of approximately 3 miles of JD 14 Main Branch within the Lilac Ridge area. The Lilac Ridge Road structure is proposed to increase from a single line of 60-inch pipe to 3-lines of 72-inch, and the inverts lowered approximately 5-feet to the proposed ditch grade. To get flows from the JD 14 Main Branch into the site, an inlet structure would be constructed across JD 14 approximately one mile west of Lilac Ridge Road. Low flow would continue down JD 14 while high flows would be directed into the impoundment site through an earthen weir. The impoundment site would also include an outlet riser structure to release flows back into the JD 14 system once downstream conditions subside.
