After the December 30, 2021 article regarding the Flathead Indian Irrigation Project reconstruction efforts a number of calls were made to the Indian Preference Office inquiring about upcoming projects and construction bids.

Dick Anderson was awarded the project for Jocko River K Canal Headworks reconstruction in September, 2020.

That firm was awarded the contract for pre-construction services and moved directly to construction services. The Jocko K Diversion was BIA funded.

Currently, there are not any pending construction projects planned for the next several months. 

Efforts are underway to develop a web site for more informational updates. Some information on existing projects is posted on in the natural resources section under Water Management, Water Resources Program, and Irrigation Infrastructure.

When a project is put out, it is distributed broadly. Please look for future updates. All Irrigation Projects will be advertised in the Char-Koosta.
