Pioneer water users unveil ‘21st Century irrigation system’

When Wenatchee settlers formed the Pioneer Water Users Association (Pioneer) in 1896, they dug ditches and used gravity to move water from the Wenatchee to their orchards and crops — a state -of-the-art technology in the late 19th century.

More than a century later, Pioneer, true to its name, is leading the way in irrigation innovation in the Upper Columbia and the Pacific Northwest, celebrating the first season of a high-tech water delivery system that — with the flick of a new pumphouse switch — has brought water delivery into the 21st century while furthering the recovery of threatened spring Chinook, steelhead and bull trout in the Wenatchee River.
