Significance: The significance of the ditch is found in its longevity and that even today it still maintains its character as a small, hand dug canal representative of the dozens of similar ditches and irrigation systems that once criss-crossed eastern Boulder County. It is significant at the local level for its associations with the early agricultural history of Boulder County.
