Summary

Significance: The Natomas Ditch System's significance comes from its role in the history and development of mining and agricultural endeavors in the Folsom area. The system was determined eligible for inclusion in the National Register of Historic Places (NRHP) under Criterion A at the local level of significance as a discontiguous district. Its period of significance extends from 1853 to 1943. Segments that date to the period of significance and retain integrity have the potential to be eligible for inclusion in the NRHP. The portion of the main canal of the Natomas Ditch System that is within the boundaries of the Parkway Project retains sufficient integrity and has been determined to be eligible for inclusion in the NRHP as a contributing element of a discontinguous district.
