The Stantec Nevada city team will perform fieldwork and studies to prepare the CEQA study that will be required to build a water treatment plant. NID has supplied irrigation water to the Lincoln area for years.Development in recent decades has increased the need for treated drinking water supplies. Plans cal for NID to produce the treated water and transfer it to the City for distribution through the municipal pipeline system. The environmental study is expected to take 18 months. A future timeline for the project will depend on the outcome of that study.
