Underground Tunnels Still Exist In Twin Falls


By Michelle Costa

TWIN FALLS, ID (KMVT TV) - Back in the day, underground tunnels were built in Twin Falls and today, they're still working.

There are 49 underground tunnels beneath Twin Falls.

Without knowing where these tunnels are, you would probably never find them.

The water is 58 degrees inside the tunnels and 15 of them go into the Rock Creek Canyon.

"They were a real important part of the Canal Company history because we would have had 20,000 – 30,000 acres that couldn't have been farmed if they didn't figure out a way to solve the problem,” said Brian Olmstead, Twin Falls Canal Company.

Be sure to tune in Sunday night when Michelle Costa will take us to this underground world.

She'll tell us where the longest tunnel is.

That's Sunday on KMVT News at 10 pm.
