Irrigation

September 23, 2016
This view is from the canal side of Orman Dam. Within the reservoir are two intakes on the bottom. Pipes carry the water through the bottom of the dam to two canals on the other side. The gate houses that sit above the dam for each pipe control the flow through the pipes. The gate houses were rebuilt in 2014 and 2015. The originals were from 1910. There are stairs from the canal level to the top of the dam. (Bob Mercer for The Daily Republic)
