Definition of the word

Nuance – “To shade, cloud” a good definition when dealing with government entities.

How many times have we heard that we must work through the process? The mission statement for NID is as follows: The Nevada Irrigation District will provide a dependable water quality water supply, strive to be good stewards of the watersheds and conserve the available resources.

Conservation is certainly accomplished when costs preclude entering into an agreement or larger projects outside Nevada County take precedent. Oversight is not with our county supervisors, but supposedly supplied by the state.

If you have waited more than 10 years for an answer, been frustrated by a lack of candor or misled by changes in this agency, don’t feel bad, this is an independent public agency governed by an elected board.
