The system begins at Wanawish Dam where water is diverted from the Yakima River into the main canal.
The CID system consists primarily of open canals, both lined and unlined, which total approximately 41 miles in length. Some CID lateral pipelines, mostly gravity flow, also exist to distribute water from the canals. The CID operates and maintains 50 Local Improvement Districts (LIDs) which provide irrigation water to each individual parcel.
