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. These waterways represent a potential source of water that could be reused for irrigation. The proposed return flow recovery program would enhance the irrigation water supply for the RSBOJC while reducing the quantity of sediment discharged to the Yakima River. With adequate funding, the feasibility study could be done during 1998 and 1999. If the concept is found to be feasible, the water supply and quality improvements could be implemented as soon as 2000. 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 return flow recovery systems are constructed.
