Section 7. Abstract

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 constructed wetlands would improve the quality of the Yakima River by removing much of the sediment from the drain water before it enters the river. The wetlands will require very little maintenance other than periodic attention to the water control structures. Some sediment removal may be necessary to maintain proper flow patterns. Construction of the wetlands will be achieved through a five step program which will consist of: site selection, design, property acquisition, construction, and O & M. With adequate funding, the program could be started during 1998. The water quality improvements would be achieved when the wetlands are constructed in 1999. 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 wetlands are constructed.
