NID Snowpack Dropping

In another indication of a mostly-dry 2020, so far, the water content of the snowpack in the Nevada Irrigation District has dropped to 72-percent of average. Precipitation in January was only 58-percent of average. But reservoir storage is still strong, at 104-percent of normal, thanks to a good carryover from last year’s exceptional snowpack that also had a late runoff period. NID’s Water Resources Superintendent says the late runoff allowed district reservoirs to maintain storage while meeting downstream demands.
