Dam in Strawberry Furrow, Pajaro Valley, California 700-A-a-144 1915 August 26

Photographer: Hutchins, Wells A. (Wells Aleck), 1888-1970
Physical Description: 1 negative
Physical Description: 2 prints

Scope and Content

These dams are placed at intervals of about 80 feet in furrows in a strawberry field where the furrows are given any grade. Their purpose is to hold back the irrigation water and thus to permit of an adequate irrigation at the upper ends of the furrows as well as at the lower ends. The reason for laying the furrows on a grade is to permit rain water to run off in the winter where the soil is so heavy that it does not absorb rain water as it falls. Otherwise the water would flood over the berry vines and injure them. These dams are of earth and are covered with cloth or paper to prevent their washing away. These excess water flows over the dam into the next section below.

Photographer: Adams, Frank, 1875-1967
Physical Description: 1 glass plate negative
Physical Description: 3 prints

Scope and Content

The width of the canyon at the bottom of the dam would be about 80 feet and with a hundred foot height the top width would be about 300 feet. The reservoir site back of this dam site was surveyed in 1904 as a proposed debris collecting basin. At an elevation of 75 feet above the present bed this survey gives the storage capacity as 7,500,000 cubic yards; at an elevation of 100 feet a storage capacity of 14,500,000 cubic yards or about 9000 acre feet. The elevation of this reservoir site is about 1800 feet according to Mr. Parker or about 450 feet above Auburn.

Physical Description: 1 negative
Physical Description: 2 prints

Scope and Content

The last length of this pipe, as shown in the picture, has holes about 2x4 to 6 inches in dimension for permitting the deposit of the larger particles before the main volume of water is discharged at the outlet. This gives the finer particles greater opportunity to be carried to the center of the dam. All material was deposited just inside each rim wall. The heavier particles are thus left on the outside and the "fines" are washed to the center to form the only core-wall provided.

Scope and Content

Reconstruction of old dam destroyed by flood Jan. 27, 1916. Overtopped with flood water-wasteway too small. Took about 15 or 20 minutes for practically the entire dam to be taken away after being overtopped. The crest of the flood reached Otay, nine miles downstream in 45 minutes. Upper portion of lower fill soon sank when dam overtopped and few minutes later another lower section was taken out after which the core wall broke open - when the gorge was quickly cleared out. Shows steel core wall of old dam.

Scope and Content

This shows the lower end of a galvanized iron flume and the concrete-lined section to which it is joined by a concrete transition. This is on the upper part of the canal, quite a distance from the irrigated lands which it serves. This canal is mostly in earth. Formerly wooden flumes were used to carry the canal around gulches on grade, but the present policy is to substitute these wooden flumes with steel flumes on trestles crossing the gulches directly.

Physical Description: 2 prints

Scope and Content

Water is distributed from these flumes to furrows through holes bored in the bottoms of the flumes. The heavy growth of oats and other wild volunteer crops is shown in both pictures. This heavy growth is common to most of the Sierra foothill orchards of Placer County during the irrigation season, due to entire absence of cultivation after irrigation begins in the spring.

Physical Description: 1 negative
Physical Description: 3 prints

Scope and Content

This flume was constructed of American ingot iron or "Armco" iron, No. 18, with a substructure of angle iron. The total cost of this flume and substructure in place was $5,076.19. The material of which the dam was constructed was hydraulicked around the foundation of this flume, consequently, the flume rests on its own foundation and does not depend upon the dam for support.

This was the last of the serveral wooden flumes on the main canal which were replaced by more permanent structures. With the exception of the Dry Creek flume, which was replaced by a concrete structure, all of the flumes of the Modesto Irrigation District were replaced by fills - most of them hydraulicked fills with concrete lined canals.

Scope and Content

A line of works of this kind is spaced at regular intervals in this grove, the slope being from left to right and also in the direction of the flume and waste ditch. By use of this complete method, all waste is backed up in the masonry ditch at the lower ends of the furrows and returned to the distributing flume at suitable intervals.

Concrete Distributing Flume, Paralleling Covina Ditch, California 700-H-94 1914

Photographer: Adams, Frank, 1875-1967
Physical Description: 1 negative
Physical Description: 2 prints

Scope and Content

This picture illustrates one main disadvantage of the concrete flume over the underground system. The flume is constantly filled with trash and such a distributary requires considerable headland for the turning of teams. It is only in the groves of considerable slope that such flumes are utilized much now. Some of the growers like them better than an underground system, where the slope is considerable, because it is easier to carry equal quantities of water into the furrows from flumes on side hills than from standpipes.

The flume is carried down a fairly steep slope but water is easily taken out on contours into each furrow. A row of red geraniums alongside the flume gives to this scene some of the beauty which makes many of the citrus groves exceedingly attractive.
