WAPATO, Wash. -- Konnowac Pass Road, near Wapato will remain closed overnight due to a canal breach Thursday.

Pat Andreas, manager for the Union Gap Irrigation District, tells KNDO crews have shut off the water to the canal and will continue to assess to determine the exact cause for the breach.

Crews with the Yakima County Roads Department closed Konnowac Pass Road due to large amounts of water over the roadway. Local traffic will be allowed to drive through the closure to access their homes.

We've got a reporter on the scene right now and will bring your more information tonight at 6PM on KNDO Local News.
