Location: Shiprock, NM
Gadii'ahi chapter is a Farming Community, over XX farmers grow an abundance of melon, Indian (Blue, White, Yellow) corn and a variety of vegetables, along with grain and hay. Over the past decade the Chapter has been making capital investments to slowly convert their earthen irrigation canal into a pressurized pipeline allowing for more efficient distribution of irrigation water to their fields thus increasing agriculture production and revenue.
Converting to a closed pipeline is also good for the environment and reduces water loss from evaporation and reduces salinity in the remaining water.
