KID Customers See Drop in Water Pressure in Some Spots
KENNEWICK, Wash.- Some Kennewick residents may notice a drop in their irrigation water pressure in the Garfield area.
The city actually did some work to help control flooding, but it's caused the water pressure to drop for some residents that use this canal.
The new piping changed the way some KID customers are getting their irrigation water.
The pressure has been reduced, but the company says they're addressing the problem, and while there's no immediate fix, they're doing what they can to make sure customers still get what they need.
"We think we've found something that will help ease, you know, the pressure problems for the rest of the season and we'll continue to monitor it and then in the winter we're going to completely redesign and engineer the system," said Beth Smith with KID.
They won't have a permanent solution until they drain the canals in the fall.
Until then, KID reps say the best thing to do is reduce the strain on the system by watering only every other day to keep the pressure high.
