Message from the General Manager
Welcome to the GM Newsletter. March is the beginning of warmer weather, and it’s a critical time as the snowpack melts into our water supply for the year.
This newsletter tracks the latest snow survey, plus reservoir levels and precipitation totals.
Also, read about water efficiency. Unfortunately in February NID customers actually used 17 percent more treated water than they did in February 2021. Water conservation is so important as we adjust to drought conditions and water uncertainties, as we build resilience to climate change
This newsletter is a good resource to stay up to date on everything NID.
In this month’s edition:
- Mulch Magic Giveaway returns on May 14
- Snow Survey: the average water content in the snowpack was 23.8 inches or 85 percent of average of 27.9 inches for the District’s five high-elevation snow courses
