For those unable to attend Thursday evening’s Water Summit, hosted by the Nevada Irrigation District, community radio station KVMR, 89.5FM, plans to provide live coverage of the discussion.
Water issues facing the Sierra foothills will be explored during a special community meeting hosted by NID 6-8 p.m. Thursday in the Don Baggett Theater at Nevada Union High School, 11761 Ridge Road, in Grass Valley.
