Because of flooding that continued to ruin their farmland and homes, men of the area decided to build their own canal. James Jepson and John Steele mapped the route and everyone banded together to build it. It was across steep hillsides, across ravines and had many other obstacles to keep it from happening. That, however, did not deter the men. By 1902, there were still parts that were not completed. The money was gone and people were discouraged. The local LDS church helped with a large stock purchase which gave them hope to move forward. Even so, it took two more years, in 1904, before water reached this valley. With the water, the new town was begun. These pioneers worked hard and fulfilled their dream for water and because of them, Hurricane can exist today.
