Lincoln water proposal subject of meeting

A public hearing will be held about the Nevada Irrigation District’s plan to pay as much as $1.7 million to study the building of a new water treatment plant for the growing city of Lincoln.

The hearing will be held from 6 p.m. to 7:30 p.m., March 4, at Mt. Pleasant Hall, 3333 Mt. Pleasant Road, near Lincoln. It’s the second hearing in a series of two hearings.

In August, NID board members approved a planning phase agreement with the City of Lincoln. The agreement includes paying up to 50 percent of $3.4 million for environmental and engineering studies for the proposed treatment plant there.

The city would pay to build the treatment plant.

The agreement covers water service to land within NID’s existing boundaries to the north and east of Lincoln. The land also is within the proposed sphere of influence of the growing city.
