According to reports, the Kennewick Irrigation District is wrapping up some construction and clean-up projects during the off-season and KID needs a little bit more time to wrap up those projects.

One of the projects is widening the canals and also making the canals safer with sturdier walls. KID is also hopeful the wider canals will capture water that'll help when Kennewick is experiencing a drought.
