Ceremony celebrates revival of the McElmo Creek Flume

Historic structure removed from endangered places list
The McElmo Flume’s foundation has been rebuilt and the wooden trough that carried irrigation water for more than 100 years was restored. The flume is the only survivor of 104 wooden flumes built by early water companies to irrigate the Montezuma Valley.
Historian Linda Towle, who spearheaded the restoration effort, cuts the ribbon celebrating the saving of the McElmo Flume.
