NID Limits Sale of Irrigation Water

The Nevada Irrigation District has suspended sale of fall season irrigation water in order to preserve more water in storage as a cushion against continued drought.
NID Operations Manager Chip Close says the summer irrigation season closed a little over a week ago.

Close says in most years, the district offers fall sales, but this is dependent upon water storage and availability.

Close said that no fall sales are being offered this year but the district remains hopeful that fall rains continue to move in and help the region. Customers with concerns about service are encouraged to contact the district.
Winter water supplies are being made available this year.

At this point treated water customers are unaffected, but NID is still asking for a 20% reduction in use.

As a result of the conservation efforts, NID is moving into the 2014-15 rainfall season with more water in storage than was anticipated earlier this year.
NID is currently holding about 140,000 acre-feet of water in storage.*
