2020 Agricultural Water Managment Plan

The NID Board of Directors approved its 2020 Agricultural Water Management Plan (AWMP) on April 14, 2021, and it has been submitted to the State’s Department of Water Resources.  

The report includes information about NID’s roughly 5,600 agricultural customers such as past water usage, conservation efforts, and other management elements. 

About ninety percent of all the water delivered by NID is for agricultural use giving life to approximately 32,000 acres of irrigated land in Nevada and Placer Counties. Most agricultural water customers purchase water seasonally, from mid-April through mid-October. NID’s raw water is conveyed to customers through a unique network of over 500 miles of canal. The ag water is used to grow multiple crops including wine grapes, nursery stock, apples, rice, plums, citrus, grass, alfalfa hay, as well as to irrigate pasture.
