Due to the project jumping over $20 million in costs, the Roza Irrigation District has cancelled a promising plan that would have created a drought emergency pumping station in the middle of Lake Kachess.
The largest irrigation system in Kittitas County (which includes the cities of Ellensburg, Thorpe, and Cle Elum) has announced they will cease water deliveries for the rest of the 2015 season, due to extreme drought conditions.
At first glance, many irrigation districts across Southeastern Washington thought it would be tight this summer with water supplies, but now further examination shows possible, or probable, drought conditions.
They're not officially calling it a drought, but Kennewick Irrigation District officials say they're prepared to utilize their drought plans to ensure water will be delivered when and where it's needed, if necessary.
