Heads Up Kennewick, Your Irrigation Water Is Getting Shut Off!
It seems like we just started the irrigation season in Kennewick but it'll soon be wrapped up for 2021.
The irrigation water will soon be turned off for Kennewick residents starting on October 10th according to the KID website.
If you want to get those last few waterings in before the season ends, now would be the time to get it done over the next few weeks.
The official water shut-off date is October 10th but the Kennewick Irrigation District has a few reminders for customers as the season comes to a close.
KID is asking customers not to blow out their sprinklers until after the official shut-off date. If you do it before, water might flow right back into your pipes and could cause damage over the winter.
KID is also reminding customers that there will still be water in the canals but the reason is that water is used for testing and not irrigation.
A final reminder from The Kennewick Irrigation District is that the 2nd half of your irrigation payment is due by October 31st.
KID says that paying on time will ensure that your entire payment is applied to your assessment.
When a payment is late, the late fee and interest are paid first, then the remaining payment is applied to the assessment, leaving a small balance that will incur additional interest.
Lastly KID is reminding customers that they'll be going back to their "water-off" hours after the irrigation season ends and will be open Monday - Thursday 8:00 AM - 5:30 PM.
You can always get more details about the water/irrigation shutoff here and don't forget to get those final payments in by October 31st.
