NID Water Operations Manager Chip Close says , Obviously that’s a large concern for the district as the early winter storms are a great opportunity for the district to capture and store water for the next summer.

The NID summer irrigation season will close as usual on Oct. 14. the Fall Water season is October 15th to December 1st. Close says about 100 customers who typically receive that water will not get it this year. That’s why the district is trying to get the word out early so those customers can make preparations for the coming months.
As for Winter Water, Close says it still will be provided but only to existing customers.
