Plan for Water continues on Feb. 8 with a water rights workshop

Join us for a February 8 teleconferenced workshop to help plan our community's water future. Scheduled is an overview of water rights currently held by NID, including locations, year of seniority and current usage.

Remember, in California, no one owns the water. But water rights are a legal entitlement authorizing water to be diverted from a specified source and put to beneficial use.

The Plan for Water discussion will include:

  • Part 1: Surface Water Rights 101
  • Part 2: Pending NID Water Right Proceedings
  • Part 3: NID’s Water Rights

Your participation will help determine the best ways to meet the community’s demand for water over the next 50 years. We look forward to hearing from you
