Port proceeds with piping water lines

Port of Sunnyside commissioners on Wednesday approved two easements to the Sunnyside Valley Irrigation District (SVID).

The easements stem from the fact there are two SVID irrigation drain lines on port property. One parcel impacted is on the north side of Alexander Road and the other is on the south side of Alexander, noted Port Manager Amber Hansen.

"We're going to have SVID pipe those lines," she said. As part of the project, the port will provide two easements to SVID in order to have the lines piped right on the property boundary line.
