Significance: The Outlook Irrigation District (OID) is part of one of the earliest, largest, and most successful federal reclamation projects, the Yakima Project. The OID is part of the Sunnyside Division of the Yakima Project, which was authorized on December 12, 1905. The Sunnyside Division is unique in the Yakima Project for its use of hydraulic turbine pumping plants at drops on the Sunnyside Main Canal, such as at Outlook. The development of irrigation systems in the Yakima Valley opened up large expanses of arid land for development and shaped the economic and social history of the region, resulting in the emergence of the Yakima Valley as a premier farming region nationally. The pumping plants, with their associated discharge pipelines, are considered to be interesting engineering features of the Yakima Project. The pumping plants represent an early and ingenious method for irrigating ground above the elevation of the Sunnyside Canal.
