KLAMATH FALLS, Ore. (AP) - A flume that’s vital to Klamath irrigators will take two construction seasons to complete.

The Herald and News reports (https://is.gd/d55Z51 ) the company that won the bid to build the new flume hoped to have the project finished by next year; however, it took longer than anticipated to process the contract and summer construction days have been lost.

The flume is now expected to be finished by April 2018. It will replace a nearly century old structure that delivers water to roughly 22,000 acres of agricultural land in the Klamath Project.

Demolition of the existing flume is scheduled to occur between April and July 2018.

The delay by the Klamath Irrigation District board in signing a construction contract arose over concerns the district did not have the full amount in the bank before starting the project.
