This diversion is located on the Tongue River and replaced an existing diversion that was constructed of river rock pushed up annually to divert the water. The structure diverts water to a sump where the water is pumped to a field irrigated with side roll sprinklers. The diversion is a fabricated steel box structure that contains a sluice with check boards with a stop at the bottom. The water is piped from the diversion box to the sump and a sluice/drain pipe was installed back to the river from the sump. The footer rocks for this diversion were concrete blocks (made from waste concrete). The top of the footer block in the center of the river is set at the required elevation to divert water into the diversion box pipe.
