Kannah Creek Aqueduct

The Kannah Creek Aqueduct (5ME.16137) is a nearly twenty-mile-long underground water transportation pipeline conveying water from Grand Junction's intake facility to reservoirs and then to the City's water treatment facility in Orchard Mesa. The 1911 pipeline was updated in 2023 with funding from the Bureau of Reclamation's WaterSMART Program.
