Irrigation water is back on

Posted: Updated:

Kennewick, WA- Just in time for the hot weather, thousands of families in the Tri-Cities have their irrigation water back.

More than 4,000 households on Columbia Irrigation District water had to go without because of a break in the main canal along Columbia Park Trail on June 16th. Workers fixed the break over the weekend, adding a concrete lining.

The Kennewick Irrigation District says service was restored Wednesday afternoon to 5,000 households that lost water Monday when workers discovered leaks along the Edison line.
