The following work took place over the summer of 2007. The Farmers Canal above and below the upper tunnel sustained heavy damage during the November 2006 flood as did the hillside where the access road to the Farmers Canal headgates and spill gates was located. A new access road was built in order to start clearing out and rebuilding the old Farmers Canal.
