Dear Land Owners:
The Pine Creek No. 1 Enlargement of the Lee Ditch, which runs through or adjacent to your property, is owned by, and appurtenant to the land that it irrigates. The ownership of the ditch also includes the ownership of an easement to go onto the property immediately adjacent to the ditch for the purposes of cleaning and maintenance including depositing debris removed from the ditch. Unfortunately, many landowners, particularly new ones, do not understand that ditch rights extend beyond the banks of the ditch itself, and because of that, through ignorance, construct improvements that encroach upon the easement area. Generally speaking this easement area extends for approximately fifty feet on each side of the bank of the ditch. Additionally, where the ditch is above or on a slope, excavation below the ditch which will endanger its integrity is not permissible even though more than fifty feet from the bank.
Sometimes in the past, because of the scarcity of property owners involved, the ditch owners have permitted encroachments by way of real estate improvements or otherwise. Unfortunately, that can no longer be tolerated. If a landowner erects an improvement within the easement area that interferes with ditch access and cleaning, the ditch owners will have to take legal action to force removal of that improvement. Needless to say, that causes the landowner the loss of use of his improvement and imposes the additional expense of removal, not to mention any legal fees that may be involved in the process. The ditch owners prefer to be good neighbors and to simply notify people to the extent possible about the potential for a problem before it develops. Please plan your development to avoid encroachment, and we in turn will make our cleaning and maintenance operation as unobtrusive as possible.
At this time of year, many landowners adjacent of the ditch find it convenient to use water from the ditch by various means (pumps, siphons, ditches and various pipes). Use of such conveyances is unlawful and the Pine Creek Ditch Association Members ask you to voluntarily remove any such equipment from the ditch as soon as possible.
Thank you for your cooperation. We invite you to contact us if you have any questions.
