Barker Ranch Horn Rapids Canal Piping Project
The project increased the Barker Ranch's water delivery system efficiency by converting an open canal into a piped system. The increased efficiency allowed Barker Ranch to divert less water from the Yakima River, adding an additional 6,436 acre/feet of water to summer streamflows.
More water will be left in the river to benefit fish during the summer when water demand is highest.
Over 6,400 ac-ft of water is now available for streamflows
