Water engineering for construction projects

If you are planning a construction project, there is a good chance that you will encounter an SRP irrigation facility. Even if a facility has been removed, or appears to be inactive or abandoned, there may be legal requirements for the facility and associated land rights.

It is important that you contact SRP Water Engineering to find out if an SRP irrigation facility is near your project, whether it may need to be relocated, and the process involved. A license from SRP is necessary to do any work or to construct improvements or other facilities within an SRP irrigation facility right-of-way.

SRP's irrigation system

SRP operates about 1,300 miles of irrigation system throughout the Phoenix metropolitan area. Much of the system has existed in some form since the early 1900s, when private canal systems were acquired by the federal government to ultimately form — along with Roosevelt Dam — SRP.

The system conveys water to city water treatment plants and agricultural and urban irrigators, including homes, parks and schools. It is composed of large canals, open ditches, underground pipelines, and gated delivery structures.
