Canal Problem Leaves 1400 Yakima Homes Without Irrigation Water
A canal problem with one of the city of Yakima's irrigation providers has left 1400 Yakima homes without irrigation water right now. More details in the city of Yakima release below:
The New Schanno Canal Company, a private provider of irrigation water to the City of Yakima’s Lenox System and 9th Avenue System, has been experiencing problems with its canal since last Friday, July 13th. The canal has been shut down since that time, resulting in about 1400 homes having no irrigation service.
Crews from the City of Yakima Water/Irrigation Division are assisting the private canal company in trying to determine what’s causing the problem. However, as of now no estimate has been made regarding when irrigation water service will be restored to the areas served by the canal.
The Lenox System serves the area from Voelker Avenue to 12th Ave between Nob Hill Boulevard and Mead Avenue. The 9th Avenue System serves and area from 7th Ave to 10th Ave between Baker Street and Nob Hill.
Customers who have questions about the canal shutoff can contact the City of Yakima’s Water/Irrigation Division at 575-6194.
