Where Our Irrigation Water Comes From

The source of our irrigation water is the McNary Pool which is a little over two miles north of Rancho Reata. The District owns, operates, and maintains a large pump station at the Yakima River Delta. There are a total of six vertical shaft turbine pumps comprising a total of 8,000 HP. These pumps push the water a distance of about 2.5 miles with a vertical lift of 560’ through a 4-foot diameter steel pipe to an open reservoir and nearby booster station. This main booster station pressurizes the water for all irrigated agricultural and residential properties south of Badger Mountain.
