South Columbia Basin Irrigation District announces revised 2017 water turn-on dates

Posted: Updated:

PASCO, WA - Because of the need to repair damage to canals due to runoff, the South Columbia Basin Irrigation District's 2017 irrigation season will begin on March 29th, 2017, to the Mattawa area and the Potholes area of Franklin County. Blocks 2 and 3 will begin on March 29th, 2017.

Irrigation deliveries will be dependent on demand in the individual lateral systems.

In locations where pumping plants are required for irrigation deliveries, startup dates will depend on adequate orders to start the pumping plants.

Irrigation to the Block 18 East Low Canal system is scheduled to begin on March 30th, 2017. 

Landowners will need to contact their Watermaster office for specific delivery dates and water availability.
