Eliot Creek

Eliot Creek

In the fall of 2006, a rain on snow event caused massive debris flows down the flanks of Mount Hood.


One of the casualties of this event was the Eliot Creek diversion within the Middle Fork Irrigation District.

This diversion is an important component to Middle Fork’s water delivery system. Read more about the huge challenges MFID faces with flood events on Mt. Hood in this great article from the Watershed Hydrogeology Blog.
