Kennewick Irrigation District’s rich history began over one hundred years ago, when the district was organized under Washington State law. It took forty years to move from "organized" to "funded" and then to "built." For the last 64 years, KID has provided water to agricultural and residential customers within parts of Kennewick, Richland, West Richland and Benton County. For the past 56 years, the land being served by KID has continued changing from farmland to residential subdivisions and commercial property at an accelerating rate.
From the head of the main canal it takes nearly seventy miles of canals, roughly 400 miles of pipes and over 120 pumping plants to distribute the water throughout the district. KID serves its ratepayers with a staff of seventy fulltime employees with a 2021 budget of over $17,000,000.
The Comptroller/Treasurer has the critical role of ensuring the district remains in good financial position to meet its mission of delivering raw Yakima River water into the heart of the Tri-Cities.
