NID board adds more funding to Scotts Flat tree removal project

The Nevada Irrigation District board of directors unanimously approved a $50,000 addition to the Scotts Flat North Fire Hazard and Tree Removal Project during its March 14 meeting.

Board members heard a presentation detailing the progress of the fuel reduction project designed to reduce the wildfire threat and bolster forest health around Scotts Flat Lake, then unanimously approved an increase to the original contract with the logging contractor from $200,000 to $250,000 to complete the work around Gate 1.

In other NID matters, the board’s May 9 meeting was canceled. The general manager reported district water storage is 237,509 acre-feet. Bowman Lake has received 83 percent of average precipitation this water year. However, the water content of snowpack in the district is 7.7 inches, which is 27 percent of average for March.

The next regular meeting of the NID Board of Directors will be at 9 a.m. March 28 at the NID Business Center located at 1036 West Main St., Grass Valley. NID Board meetings are open to the public.
