Raw water plan update planned

Dave Moller

The most recent raw water master plan for the Nevada Irrigation District was completed in 1982. Now, NID members are talking about updating the plan to “determine how much water the district needs and where it will go,” according to board member Nancy Weber.

The board’s engineering committee will discuss proposals for the master plan at 9:40 a.m. Wednesday. Committee members George Leipzig and R. Paul McWilliams will also recommend a consultant for the project and a budget.

The committee will also discuss the Lower Cascade Canal Modernization Project at 10:10 a.m. It will hear an update on the environmental impact statement that is being done for the project to meet state law. The canal project includes a proposed pipeline buried 42 to 48 inches across the southern flank of Banner Mountain. If the environmental report passes board muster later this year, the project could begin by the summer of 2004.

Also Wednesday, the committee will discuss the Lake of the Pines Water Treatment Plant expansion. There will be a construction update on the $7 million project designed to meet growth at Lake of the Pines.

The meeting will be held at NID’s offices at 1036 W. Main St. and is open to the public.
