Long Description:
In 1910 the Kimball Irrigation District voted to construct an irrigation system with a reservoir and two canals. The rough topography traversed by the canals required several aqueducts, which used flumes manufactured in Kimball, Nebraska, by Patrick Maginnis. He began building flumes in the late 1890s and soon developed the patented Galvanized Steel Flume. The Maginnis Flume Factory opened shortly thereafter, and produced flumes for projects throughout the region. This flume is listed in the National Register of Historic Places.
