KID notifies customers of canal leak

Posted: Updated:


KENNEWICK, WA - The Kennewick Irrigation District says some of their customers may not have water for a few more days. KID says they have to shut down water to fix a leak in the canal system.

This will affect people living in Kennewick, Finley, Badger Canyon, South Richland, and West Richland.

If all goes well, it will take a day for the canal to drain, a day for the repairs to be made, and two days for the canal to fill back up.


KENNEWICK, WA - The Kennewick Irrigation District wants to notify customers that they have experienced a leak within a concrete lined section of the main canal near Badger Road and Interstate 82. To repair the canal that is leaking, KID crews have shut down water delivery to the main canal, to inspect and make the necessary repairs.

The customers living in Kennewick will experience an interruption of service as well as customers served off the Main Canal, Division 4 Canal and the Highland Feeder Canal, all other customers will remain in service.

The repairs will be made as quickly as possible. KID's goal is to have all systems back up and running by Monday, but they will not know the extent of the damage until the canal is drained and inspected. They will update us as they have more information.
