Water: The Lifeblood of Agriculture
You've seen the bumper stickers "No Farms, No Food", but have you ever seen one that says "No Water, No Farms"? As the climate changes and droughts become more frequent and persistent, it is vital to understand how the water ultility in our area will ensure farmers and ranchers have the water they need to produce food now and into the distant future. Join Nevada Irrigation District (NID) staff for a robust presentation covering the Plan for Water (a public collaboration process to determine the best ways to meet our community's demand for water over the coming decades), an up-to-date water supply overview and drought regulations, and vegetation management in over 475 miles of irrigation canals. Q&A session with District management, water operations, conservation efficiency, and vegetation management staff will follow the presentation.
