See Issues Page for Important Information on The Plan for Water!

Welcome to my website!  I’m excited to share with you the progress happening at NID.  I’m proud to be a member of this new board of directors that is uniting to focus on many of the concerns I have spoken about these past two years since I was elected.

Starting September 2021, we will hold a separate workshop the Tuesday before the 2nd Wednesday of the month to review an discuss the activities of district departments, which gives the Board the opportunity to hear the information at the same time and get our questions answered before making decisions.

The general manager presented an outline for the upcoming Plan for Water Process at the July 28, 2021 Board meeting. I encourage you to review and provide any comments you think may improve the planning effort. The entire Plan for Water Process is anticipated to take 18 months.

A primary goal of mine is to prioritize planning in an effort to better understand the risks the district is facing in all departments. The district has been working on two critical upgrades to improve the planning process over the last 3 years. One is a financial process called enterprise resource planning (ERP) and the other is a computerized maintenance management system (CMMS). Details about this digital management system programs are on the Projects page.

I am excited to share that the Hemphill Fish Passage project has moved into the design and permitting phase. Staff is working closely with the regulatory agencies and is collaborating with Placer County to utilize the Placer County Conservation Program to accelerate the permitting process. I am hopeful that construction will take place next summer.
