Kennewick Irrigation District is replacing the nearly 40-year-old pump house with a new facility. This replacement will improve reliability and consistency with water delivery and improve water quality with added filtration.

Canal Lining

Type: Water Conservation
Completion Date: Ongoing
Outside Funding: $3,785,300
KID Funding: $11,204,267

KID was just awarded a $1-million WaterSMART grant from the Bureau of Reclamation to continue our canal lining and modernization program. This grant money, along with capital dollars, will help line another 5.6 miles of canal. Canal lining decreases the chance of a canal breach, provides a barrier against weeds and rodents, conserves water, reduces maintenance costs, and improves water delivery. Since 2010, KID has lined over 25 miles of canal.
