Water Situation Improving But Not Snow Pack

Last weekend’s rain was a help to current drought conditions, but NID is warning that we are not out of the woods yet. NID Operations Manager Chip Close says that the storms contributed a lot of rain to the storage system, but the snow pack condition has not improved much.

According to Close, the storage amounts in reservoirs raised, but the snow pack did not grow.

Currently reservoirs are only at 67% of capacity with water content in the snow pack at approximately 7% of average.
NID continues to ask customers to voluntarily practice conservation and reduce use by twenty percent.
