Pipes Replaced In Yakima

YAKIMA, Wash. - An irrigation project that began over 10 years ago is starting up once again.

The city's water and irrigation manager Dave Brown says they'll replace about 160,000 feet of pipes that are over 100-years-old.

Brown says the project is taking a long time because they can only work on the pipes during the winter months when the water system is turned off.

The city is replacing the pipes from Lions Park to Union Street. Then from First and Second Street, down the alley to Pacific Avenue.

Work will continue on "F" and Pine Streets, under two railroad undercrossings. Brown says people should expect some delays through the areas of construction. The project is expected to be completed by April 2007.
