Woodville Canal Company, West side of Snake River (River Mile 796), Woodville, Bingham County, ID



Significance: The Woodville Canal Company represents one of the few remaining small-scale canal companies operating in eastern Idaho that continues to be administered and managed by district farmers. The Woodville Canal was planned and constructed over a 5-year period, beginning in 1891, by area settlers near Woodville, Idaho. Construction of the diversion dam and canal provided a stable water supply to an area of semi-arid land and resulted in the agricultural development and settlement of the area.
