Pioneer Canal – Lake Hattie Irrigation District

The Pioneer Canal was constructed in 1879 and enlarged both in 1884 and during the period 1909 to 1912. The Pioneer Canal diverts water from the Laramie River at a point about three miles downstream of Woods Landing, Wyoming and is about 32 miles long, terminating about three miles northwest of the City of Laramie. The canal provides water for irrigation of approximately 18,360 acres. This system is currently operated by the Pioneer-Lake Hattie Irrigation District, which was formed in 1988.
