NID gets closer to shipping water for Lincoln

Shipping water to the growing town of Lincoln became a closer reality for the Nevada Irrigation District today.

A committee of board members voted to approve the planning stage of an agreement with the booming Placer County city to build a $235 million treatment plant. It would serve those in the town living within NID borders and any homes annexed into the city within the district boundary lines in the future.

The full board will vote on the planning proposal April 11. A vote on the proposal by the Placer County Water Agency is slated for a later date. That agency’s vote is needed because the water slated for Lincoln will flow through its facilities.

Director Nancy Weber has been against the Lincoln plan for some time, contending those customers in Nevada County who have waited for years for NID water should come first. NID has started a program to form assessment districts to get homeowners water, but Weber said those efforts are not going fast enough.
