Some GOOD news: – The Bureau of Reclamation announced that the Yakima Basin water supply will fully satisfy senior water rights. Junior water rights will receive up to 100% of entitlements based on the July 2020 total water supply available forecast. This is an improvement from the June water supply estimate.

“The high elevation snowpack provided enough inflows to fill three of the five Yakima System reservoirs, while also meeting downstream demands,” said Chuck Garner, Yakima Project River Operations supervisor.

The July forecast is based on flows, precipitation, snowpack and reservoir storage as of July 1, along with estimates of future precipitation and river flows. The Yakima Field office evaluates several runoff forecasts provided by other water resource agencies in its development. Future weather conditions that determine the timing of the runoff and the demand for water also are critical in determining stream flows, prorations and the extent to which the reservoirs fill.

Thanks KID!

Good because I’m changing plugged Algae filled filters every morning along with my neighbors on 5000 block of 12th Ave just like last year.

Summer Education Series: Part 1

Summer is coming...tomorrow! 🌞

What does that bring? Warm weather and the possibility of a lot of algae! Truck loads of it even. Why is that important to you? Well this stuff can clog your filters and is the number one cause of low pressure in your sprinkler system this time of year.

What do we do about it you ask? We treat our canals weekly with several types of herbicide and algaecide products. While these products are effective, due to the Department of Ecologys protective approach to our waste ways and rivers, our treatments are not potent enough to completely remove the pond weed and algae.

What can you do? Check and clean your filters regularly to maintain good pressure. If you continue to have issues, you can always call us at 509.586.9111 and wed be happy to help you.
