Kennewick Irrigation District Title Transfer
The Bureau of Reclamation successfully transferred ownership of federal water facilities to the Kennewick Irrigation District on Jan. 18, 2022. This is the second title transfer for the State of Washington under the John D. Dingell Jr. Conservation, Management, and Recreation Act (P.L. 116-9).
The KID title transfer covers federally owned transferred works facilities within the water conveyance and distribution system, which includes approximately 100 miles of canals and appurtenant works, a 46-acre parcel, and 971 acres of easements.
On July 22, 1953, operation and maintenance responsibilities were transferred to KID. The district has repaid a majority of the relevant project construction costs in accordance with its existing contracts.
