Irrigation water is mostly known for irrigating residential and agricultural acres, but did you know that KID irrigation water has also been beneficial during the fire season?

KID assisted the Kennewick Fire Department by making water available to help control and put out fires in Kennewick just this year. Most recently, because of the water that is discharged into Zintel Canyon, from the Highlift canal behind our building, we were able to aid the Fire Department in extinguishing the Zintel Canyon Fire.

We also provided water last month during the Country Meadow Heights fire. Helicopters were able to pull water out of our Main Canal to help control the fire and keep it from continuing to spread. KID appreciates everything the Fire Department does to keep our community safe and are proud to be able to assist where we are able.
