NID to replace water system

A subdivision water system on Banner Mountain near Nevada City will be replaced by the Nevada Irrigation District.

Wednesday the district board approved the replacement of the 1960s-era Forest Knolls treated water pipeline system. NID project engineer Bill Schell said old underground pipelines in the subdivision cannot be upgraded because they run through improved private property.

NID will install new main lines along road shoulder easements on Forest View Drive, Tree Top Circle, Sunny Slope and Northview Drive, Schell said.

Construction quotes will be sought, and work is planned for this summer on the $875,000 project.

The board also voted to increase the fee on land annexed into the district by $55, to a total of $1,230 per acre.
