Section 7. Abstract


The irrigated lands within the Roza-Sunnyside Board of Joint Control (RSBOJC) service area are drained by a network of major drainage waterways. Many of the soil types in the project are very fine textured and of excellent quality for growing crops. However, they tend to be highly erodeable. Due to their very small particle size, the eroded soil remains in suspension in the waterways ultimately making its way to the Yakima River. The proposed sediment settling basins would improve the quality of the Yakima River by removing much of the sediment from the drain water. The settling basins will require periodic cleaning as sediment accumulates. Installation of the settling basins will be achieved through a four step program which will consist of: design, property acquisition, construction, and O & M. With adequate funding, the program could be constructed during 1999. The water quality improvements would be achieved as soon as the settling basins are constructed. The success of the program would be measured as part of the RSBOJC water quality monitoring program. The presence of constituents such as turbidity and suspended solids in the water returning to the Yakima River are expected to diminish when the sediment settling basins are constructed.
