NID pipeline open house Saturday

Children can climb on a giant excavator and homeowners can get their questions answered at an open house hosted by the Nevada Irrigation District Saturday, showcasing the ongoing $40 million Banner Cascade Pipeline project.

The open house runs from 9 to 11 a.m. Saturday, Sept. 18 at the district’s Upper Banner tank site at the intersection of Banner Lava Cap and Idaho-Maryland roads.

Staff will be on hand to describe the work and answer questions, displays and informational material will be available and children will be able to climb on a giant excavator being used by Teichert Aggregates, primary contractor for the project, or walk through a section of the 48-inch-diameter pipeline.

Work began in June on what is one of the district’s largest system improvements, expected to be complete in late 2011.

The project includes 6.4 miles of large-diameter raw water pipeline and 5.5 miles of treated water pipeline, rerouting some water from the historic Lower Cascade Canal across Banner Mountain to supply two plants.

Contact Chief Engineer Gary King at (530)273-6185 for more information.
