Yakima-Tieton Irrigation District Experiencing Trouble

Posted: Updated:
 YAKIMA, WA - The Yakima-Tieton Irrigation District is having some trouble. Here's some information they asked us to share.

"The Yakima-Tieton Irrigation District has experienced some minor damage to its main canal near Highway 12. A heavy rain storm eroded an access road and caused boulders to dislodge and roll into the canal. It will be necessary to close down the entire flow in the canal beginning Friday morning. It is anticipated that the repairs and rock removal can be accomplished by mid afternoon Friday and the water flow will be resumed. It would be very helpful if every attempt could be made to limit water usage through the weekend to avoid excessive drawdown of the regulating reservoir at French Canyon."
