Abstract: The La Joya Acequia system experiences significant conveyance losses, evapotranspiration, weak embankments, high sedimentation, and damages by high flows from arroyos. In addition, the mature and decadent cottonwood trees which line the embankment along the in-town segment are susceptible to wind damage that could result in major ditch failure. These challenges result in water loss and high maintenance costs to dredge the conveyance channel and repair damages. This instability has also shown to be a major issue during flooding, and has the potential to damage property and housing that parallel the Acequia. The proposed project work as described below in this Supplemental EA is designed to address these challenges, thereby providing a reliable, efficient, low-cost, and low-maintenance system for the continued conveyance and distribution of water for use by the members of the Ditch Association.
