The Last Chance Ditch Co. is a non-profit canal company which presently delivers irrigation water to approximately 5,600 acres in Emmett, Idaho. Incorporated in 1889 with water rights dating back to 1883, the Last Chance Ditch Co. is operated and maintained in the interest of irrigation water delivery for both agricultural and domestic use via an extensive lateral delivery system throughout the Emmett valley.  The Last Chance Ditch runs south-southwest 12 miles from its' diversion point on the Payette River to its end, and is currently still operated from the original headgate.   
The stone and mortar headgate pictured at left is the original headgate installed by the Last Chance Ditch founders. Regulation of water flow is handled via three hand wheels as pictured above.  These handwheels manually lift and drop the headgates.  It is of the past and present Board of Directors' intentions to keep and maintain the headgate's historical integrity when addressing issues of effective water regulation and general maintenance.
