Respectful workers

I would like to thank the NID staff for all that they do for Nevada County. Our family has lived next to the Banner NID ditch for the past 25 years. We have witnessed many interesting events during this time: water-skiers, swimmers, fishermen, trucks and the homeless bathing in the ditch.

Recently, NID has been repairing the ditch. I would like to complement NID’s employees. They worked very hard to preserve our landscaping on the edge of the ditch. Also, I was very impressed and heartened to see NID employees, after the backhoe dislodged a bird’s nest, work to ensure that the nest and baby birds would survive. I was so impressed by this that I went onto the ditch to discover the NID employees’ names. All of the employees who have worked during this repair have been excellent.

I know that NID receives many negative comments from residents residing on NID ditches. However, we would like to express our gratitude to NID for all that they do for the community and for making every attempt to save our plants. Thank you to all of the NID employees for taking such good care of us.
