Water supply shouldn’t be problem for irrigation in North Central Washington this summer due to a healthy snow pack. Crews with the Wenatchee Reclamation District are in the process of cleaning up the miles of open ditches and checking for damage from this past winter. NCWLIFE’s Steve Hair caught up with one of the crews . . .
The Wenatchee Reclamation District maintains over 37 miles of canals extending from Dryden East to the Rock Island area. Over 5 thousand customers are served. Officials say they plan to charge the canals on April 10th. The Highline Canal has been supplying water to area orchards and for over a century.
