The Garrison Diversion Conservancy District (Garrison Diversion) employs an operations and maintenance (O&M) staff second to none. With a primary goal to keep the principal supply works of the Garrison Diversion Unit (GDU) in optimal condition, the men and women on board work hard to do the job right.
The principal supply works consists of the McClusky Canal, New Rockford Canal, Snake Creek Pumping Plant (SCPP), and Oakes Test Area. The facilities are owned by the Bureau of Reclamation (Reclamation) and Garrison Diversion is responsible for the O&M on the GDU project facilities under a cooperative agreement with Reclamation.
Additional facilities like the Jamestown Reservoir, Lonetree Wildlife Management Area, and Arrowwood and Audubon National Wildlife Refuges, receive Garrison Diversion’s O&M assistance when requested.
