Educational Post Alert! 🚨

We first want to take a moment and say thank you to one of our customers for alerting us to some burrowing animal activity in their back yard that also happens to back up to one of our canals (See Photos). Thankfully they reported it early enough that these pesty gophers were only burrowed close to our right of way (ROW). 

The reason were thankful is because burrowing animals are the number ONE cause of canal breaches in the western part of the United States. If you see them on or near one of our canals, report it as soon as possible by using the link below or by calling 509.586.9111.

GO-PHER IT!

Its National Payroll Week! 💵🗃💰 

Definitely giving a shout out to these amazing ladies (Wendy D, Accounting Technician, Cindy A, Accounting Technician and not pictured, Melissa O, Accounting Supervisor) for all of their hard work making sure everyone is paid accurately and on time, among your many other duties!  Thank you for all you do! #MathIsHardForMe 

FUN FACTS!
| In 1932, the Hollywood Candy Company created the Payday candy bar. At the time, the inventors at the company (owner Frank Martoccio) didn’t know what to call their new creation. Since it happened to be payday, one of them suggested they call it a Payday Bar.

| According to ancient “pay stubs,” employees in Egypt and Mesopotamia used to be paid in beer and other commodities.

| The most common pay frequency in the US is biweekly. This frequency is used by 37 percent of private businesses. Surprisingly, weekly pay frequency beats semimonthly as a runner-up at 32 percent.

Leave Robert Cox Farms alone! You have no right to take their land. Find a different location for your reservoir! Leave our farmers alone!

So my new question for Kennewick Irrigation District is, you already have your decision on the eniment domain on the coxs land dont you?? As you are know going door to door bugging all the neighbors on making unreasonable and unrealistic accommodation for the canal to be widen for the project, that yet supposedly hasn't had a decision made ! 🤔

Hope you have a good solution for the horrible lag that zoom anyways has, and sure hope once the virus is better you hold another meeting to answer the wide spread un answered questions were the public can attended like chuck freeman stated would be happening!

Hello i would like to bring it to the attention, we had/and or are still having several people reach out to us stating they could NOT get on the meeting. The website keep telling them, wrong password or they never got let into the meeting(accepted) There are several people stating there questions never got read or answered. So with the publics best interest, KID needs to have another meeting in person like was stated before would be happening. I know due to the virus, in person meetings at this time are on hold. But it seems benton County at this time is slowly starting to open up. As a member of KID stated last night on the meeting you think it could be 2 years till in person meeting, I don't believe that as true. KID says there transparent, they need to have a in person public meeting for the best interest of the public that is Concerned.
