Nevada Irrigation District

From Wikipedia the free encyclopedia

Nevada Irrigation District (NID) is an agency in Northern California that supplies water for much of Nevada County and portions of Placer and Yuba Counties. The water is used for irrigation, municipal and domestic purposes. It was established in 1921.

The Nevada Irrigation District owns and operates a system of ten reservoirs, many part of the Yuba-Bear Hydroelectric Project. These include:[1]

The district also has seven hydroelectric plants. Unlike many of California's irrigation districts, it is not an electrical utility.
