Canals Overflow Near Fowler

By  | 

Two canals overflowed their banks near Highway 50 and near Fowler east of Pueblo Wednesday afternoon.

The water was starting to go down Wednesday evening, but earlier in the day there was more than two feet of water rushing over the highway.

The supervisor of the canal company says they've had to shut off water because of the damage to the Highland Canal.

That means more than 30,000 acres of farmland won't be able to get water until the canal is fixed.
