Shutdown of Private Delivery System Will Interrupt Irrigation Service

Posted: Updated:

YAKIMA, WA - A private provider of irrigation water to the City of Yakima's Lenox System and 9th Avenue System has been experiencing problems with its delivery system recently. In order to figure out the problem, the New Schanno Canal Company, will be temporarily shut down Wednesday. 

The shutdown will results in about 1,400 homes experiencing reduced irrigation water pressure. Some homes may be completely without irrigation water while crews look into the system's problems.

Irrigation water service will begin to be restored as soon as repairs are made to the New Schanno delivery system, which is expected to happen Wednesday afternoon. Full irrigation water service will likely be back for both the Lenox System and the 9th Avenue System on Thursday.

The Lenox System serves the area from Voelker Avenue to 12th Avenue, between Nob Hill Boulevard and Mead Avenue. The 9th Avenue System serves the area from 7th Avenue to 10th
