It’s believed that an approximately 3-foot-tall berm on a DeRuyter Brothers Dairy field used for growing wheat breached, sending runoff from snowmelt and rain across another field where cow manure had recently been applied, said Yakima County Public Services Director Vern Redifer.
“We are saddened to see flooding in our local Outlook community Wednesday morning and are sympathetic to our neighbors who find themselves in this situation.
We have heard that a neighbor believes that we are responsible for the flooding because rapidly melting snow overtopped a berm in one of our farm fields.
While we are sorry for our neighbor’s circumstances, we are not responsible for the flooding they are experiencing,” the statement said.
