NID Updates Water Status

With rain arriving in Nevada County Wednesday evening and continuing Thursday, fingers are crossed that water storage and snowpack conditions will improve. NID Operations Manager Chip Close says the status has improved from last month but there is still a long way to go.

The concern is that the snow pack has only improved slightly since last month.

The last measurement had the water content in the snowpack at just 7% of average.
Close says that the snowpack is actually the largest storage supply for NID as it refreshes groundwater all summer long.
NID has yet to officially call a drought, but continues to ask customers to voluntarily conserve water by reducing use by 20 percent.
