Larrouy to present Carson River irrigation program in Alpine County
The Historical Society of Alpine County has invited Deputy Watermaster Julian Larrouy of Carson Valley to present “An Overview of the Irrigation Systems Fed by the Carson River” at the general membership meeting, Wednesday, March 31.
Originating in high country, the irrigation courses were engineered many years ago to provide nourishment for pastures in Alpine and Douglas counties.
“Larrouy’s outline of these vital ditches will prove to be of equal interest to mountain and Valley historical society members and guests,” said Gina Gigli, society spokesperson.
The evening at the Alpine County Museum in Markleeville will open at 6 p.m. with a potluck supper, followed by a brief business meeting and then capped with Larrouy’s presentation of the historically constructed waterways.
