MOSES LAKE Federal Bureau of Reclamation officials are monitoring water seepage along Interstate 90 near the Weber Siphon.
“Reclamation is monitoring the site and taking protective measures," Reclamation Construction Engineer Program Manager Brandt DeMars said Friday.
The agency was alerted to the seepage today by the state Department of Transportation, which located it near where two concrete pipes run underneath the interstate.
The pipes are used for irrigation, Reclamation officials said.
"The seep is minor, and at this time does not pose a threat to I-90 or to the frontage road,” DeMars said. “The East Low Canal remains fully operational and irrigation flows have not been affected.”
