UPDATE: KID Estimates Canal Will Be Refilled Friday


Contractors have been working 24 hours a day with a Kennewick Irrigation District (KID) crew to repair a breached canal near Game Farm Road and Oak Street.

Due to unforeseen complications with the repairs, KID estimates the canal will be refilled by this Friday by 6 PM and normal operations will resume this Saturday.

Irrigation water was turned off this past Saturday night due to the breach and is affecting about 4,500 customers in the district.
