Bruce Ivy Construction selected for NID office project

Directors of the Nevada Irrigation District on Wednesday awarded a $241,000 contract to a Grass Valley construction company for a major repair project at the NID Business Center on West Main Street.

The board unanimously approved the contract with Bruce Ivy Construction for permanent repairs to solve leakage problems in the building’s eastern wing, which was built in 1997.

NID Engineering Manager Gary King said the district has patched and painted and made several attempts to repair leak damaged areas. He said permanent structural modifications are needed to take care of the problem.

The contractor will be paid on a time and materials basis, plus overhead, and has agreed to schedule as much of the work as possible during nonbusiness hours to reduce the impact on operations in the office building.

Work is expected to start in coming weeks and be completed this year.

In other business, directors:

• Heard water supply updates from General Manager Rem Scherzinger and Water Operations Administrator Sue Sindt. As of July 23, NID water storage stood at 216,000 acre-feet, which is 101 percent of average for the date.

• Amended this year’s surplus water sale agreement with the South Sutter Water District to supply an additional 2500 acre-feet of water to the small district which supplies agricultural water users in Sutter and Placer counties. Due to water supply uncertainties earlier this year, NID in April approved a 5000 acre-foot surplus water sale to South Sutter, smaller than the usual 10,000 acre-foot allotment.

• Voted for incumbent Ginger Root of Stockton for election as the Region II representative on the California Special Districts Association board of directors.

• Voted for four of seven candidates who are running for election to the board of the Special District Risk Management Authority. NID directors supported Mike Scheafer of Costa Mesa, John Woolley of Arcata, incumbent Jean Bracy of Victorville and incumbent David Aranda of Bakersfield.

The next regular meeting of the NID board of directors will be held at 9 a.m. Aug. 14, at the NID Business Center in Grass Valley. NID board meetings are open to the public.
