University of California Cooperative Extension – Placer-Nevada is conducting a survey of commercial agricultural operations in Placer and Nevada Counties to better understand how agricultural irrigation water is used, the types of crops it supports, and the economic and ecological impact of irrigated agriculture. This survey will help provide an objective evaluation of agricultural water use in our counties.
This survey is being sent to raw water customers of the Nevada Irrigation District, the Placer County Water Agency, South Sutter Water District, and other producers in the two-county region.
All responses will remain confidential and anonymous. Please complete the survey only if you are a commercial farming or ranching operation. Answer each question as accurately and completely as possible. The results of this survey will help inform future educational programs, local decision-making, and policy development.
