City Begins Phase Two Of Irrigation Improvement Project

Posted: Updated:
 YAKIMA, WA.- The irrigation improvement project has been ongoing for several years, but the city of Yakima will begin phase two this coming Thursday on parts of Summitview and Lincoln Avenues.

Water irrigation manager Dave Brown told KNDO they've already invested about fifteen million dollars citywide on improving irrigation systems and this next phase will cost about one million dollars to complete.

They'll be replacing about 12,000 feet of irrigation pipes under the streets and throughout neighborhoods.

But Brown says the bulk of the work will take place in people's backyards. 

“I think people will be surprised at what has to happen. Some of these irrigation systems are within their finished landscaping or within a concrete area, or near a pool, so some of those things are going to be disrupted,” Brown told KNDO.

Brown says the city will do their best to fix any damage done to property and restore landscaping to the way it was prior to construction.

The city hopes to have this project completed by March of next year, just in time for irrigation season.

The project will cause some traffic headaches between 27th and 37th on Summitview and Lincoln Avenues.
