Title from case label. "For 150 years, Oregon farmers and ranchers have been finding ways to move water from where it's found to where it's needed. Historically, that has often meant putting a tractor in a streambed and pushing up gravel to make a temporary dam during irrigation season. For years, this was a practical way for irrigators to obtain "water rights," even while realizing it was far from being the best way to do it. Today, there are alternatives to push-up dams. Alternatives that you might want to consider for your own farming operation. Each of the alternatives is more permanent, more friendly to fish passage, and much more efficient in delivering water when and where you need it. Join host Gary Stewart of the Northwest Ag Information Network and take a look at some of the alternatives. You'll hear from other irrigators who have switched from push-up dams. Technical and financial assistance may be available." "June, 1999."
