Significance: The Truckee-Carson Irrigation District is listed on the National Register of Historic Places as a National Register Thematic District. The District inlcudes Lake Tahoe Dam, Boca Reservoir Dam, Derby Diversion Dam, Lahontan Dam, Lahontan Power plant, Carson River Diversion Dam, 69 miles of main canals, 312 miles of laterals and 345 miles of open drains. The Lower Diagonal No. 1 Drain is 10.8 of those 345 miles of open drains. Of that, the section of the Lower Diagonal No. Drain that will be realigned is 1181 feet. It has not been determined which canals, drains, ditches and laterals are contributing elements to the District, so this section of the Lower Diagonal No. 1 Drain will be treated as a contributing element until these determinations have been made.
