NID Installs more Fiberoptic Communications to System

Nevada Irrigation District workers are digging a trench  from the Lower Cascade project to upper facilites at  Deer Creek, but it’s not for pipe, it’s for fiberoptic cable.  Residents along Banner Quaker Hill Road  were wondering what the  trench was for, so we asked NID’s Chief Engineer, Gary King  who says the high speed interactive capabilities of fiberoptic cable will help NID diagnose problems and even open and close valves without having to have workers on site.
