Since the Kennewick Irrigation District turned its water on, it hasn’t been available to my property for over half the time, starting on day 1. This is now the third time and it’s always the same excuse, “a contractor cut the main line.” Don’t they call before they dig, as they tell the public to do?
They got my first half of my yearly “tax” — $196.74, but they fail to make their product/service available and refuse to adjust or rebate any portion of the second half of our bill, due in October.
Even though we are above our monthly (and yearly) rainfall amount, this seems like a form of rationing, except we get no water any day of the week.
I’m tired of my high city water bill to keep everything green, so I can sell my house looking nice. They said they are working two shifts a day to fix the problem. They also said we are not paying for it yet, with no repairs needing to be made to our empty lines, but we are paying for it.
Never miss a local story.
