Welcome to Columbia Irrigation

Columbia Irrigation District’s office is open Monday – Friday from 7:30 am – 4:00 pm. The office phone number is (509) 586-6118. During water season the District is available for emergencies 24 hours a day by calling (509) 586-6118.

The system begins at Wanawish Dam where water is diverted from the Yakima River into the main canal.
The CID system consists primarily of open canals, both lined and unlined, which total approximately 41 miles in length.  Some CID lateral pipelines, mostly gravity flow, also exist to distribute water from the canals.  The CID operates and maintains 50 Local Improvement Districts (LIDs) which provide  irrigation water to each individual parcel.

***Due to high water usage and extreme heat the District is experiencing pump outages. Pump stations are unable to keep up with the demands. Your irrigation water right is not an unlimited about of water, and the LIDs are not designed to serve all properties at the same time for sustained periods of time. This becomes very evident in the extreme hot weather. Currently the District is having issues with LID 50 (Weber), LID 52 (Keller) and LID 59 (Riek)

 ***CID Office will be CLOSED Monday September 1, 2014 due to the Labor Day holiday. ALSO the regularly scheduled board meeting on September 1, 2014 has been moved to September 8, 2014.
