NID Meeting on Banner Cascade Canal Water Impacts

In recent years Nevada Irrigation district has conducted several studies, and monitoring programs in an effort to determine the effects of water flows being diverted from the Cascade Canal through the new  Banner Cascade Pipeline Project.  NID General Manager Ron Nelson says   there are some 47 properties with wells in the area and owners have expressed concerns about water tables dropping.

NID engineers will be presenting the results of studies and discuss future related activities at a public workshop Thursday evening September 20 from 6:30 to 8:30 p.m. in the board meeting room at the NID Business Center 1036 West Main Street Grass Valley.
The new Banner Cascade Pipeline is now being completed and is expected to go into operation later this year.  Most of the water from the canal will flow through the new pipeline, however the Lower Cascade Canal  will remain in operation at reduced flows, and the walking paths along the canal will remain open to the public.
