Nevada Irrigation District

NID Mission Statement

The Nevada Irrigation District will provide a dependable, quality water supply, strive to be good stewards of the watersheds and conserve the available resources.

Today’s NID

NID is a diversified water resource agency that supplies water to nearly 25,000 homes, farms and businesses in Nevada and Placer counties in the foothills of Northern California’s Sierra Nevada Mountains.

NID collects water from the mountain snowpack and stores it in an extensive system of 10 reservoirs. As water flows to customers in the foothills, it is used to generate clean hydroelectric energy and to provide public recreational opportunities. NID supplies both treated drinking water and irrigation water.

NID is an independent public agency governed by an elected board.
