Settlers Canal bridge

“Settlers Irrigation District began as the Settlers Ditch Company on October 30th, 1884, and now serves thousands of water users in a large part of western Ada County. The original purpose for the construction of the Settlers canal was to bring irrigation to the prairie and sage brush lands on the south side of the Boise River to entice settlers into the area.”¹
