Supervisors Vote To Address ACID Canal Flooding At Future Meeting

Last year’s dry up of the ACID Canal caused severe damage to the 109-year-old waterway that’s causing major losses. The seepage prior to last year was estimated at 30%, but now the seepage is closer to 50%. A number of neighborhoods in Anderson are complaining about heavy flooding while some agricultural customers in Cottonwood are complaining that all the water is gone before it reaches them. District Vice President James Rickert on Tuesday asked the board to seek grant money to improve the canal’s infrastructure. They voted to address the issue at a future meeting.
