    Administrative history

    The Lethbridge Northern Irrigation District formed in 1919 under the Irrigation Districts Act. The District operates irrigation turnouts and the two major turnouts: Monarch Branch headgates and Keho reservoir outlet. The District supports the production of sugar beets and other types of crops as well as livestock.

    Provincial staff at Fort Macleod operate the system. Provincial operations mainly involve river diversion, adjusting three main canal checks, and monitoring system flow gauges. Farmers in the District raised capital for this system by means of debentures until 1976, when it transferred to Government of Alberta. Under management of the Province, the headworks system expanded, doubling the canal and the Keho reservoir capacities.

    Custodial history

    The Board of Directors of the Lethbridge Northern Irrigation District donated the material to the Provincial Museum of Alberta.
