Yakima-Tieton Irrigation District Rehabilitation Program

by Karl Ames, US Bureau of Reclamation, Boise, ID, USA,

Document Type: Proceeding Paper

Part of: Planning, Operation, Rehabilitation and Automation of Irrigation Water Delivery Systems


The Yakima-Tieton Irrigation District obtained funding from the U. S. Bureau of Reclamation and the State of Washington to replace an open canal and lateral irrigation delivery system with a gravity pressure pipeline system. The conversion will eliminate the need for onfarm pumping, allow hydropower production, reduce operation and maintenance costs, provide a low cost alternative for frost control, allow significant water savings, increase the water delivery rate, and enhance public safety.
