GRASS VALLEY, Calif. October 14, 2016 – Tim Crough, assistant general manager of the Nevada Irrigation District for the past 12 years, was honored Wednesday (Oct. 12) in a retirement presentation hosted by the NID Board of Directors.

Crough joined NID in 2005 after spending five years with the City of Grass Valley, where he served as deputy city engineer and deputy public works director.  He is a graduate of San Diego State and has been a registered civil engineer since 1984.

At NID, Crough managed the district’s insurance programs, safety and risk management and public financing programs.  He has led watershed resource management, including the ongoing program to remove Gold Rush era mercury from the Bear River.

Crough does not plan a traditional retirement.  At 62, he is studying toward a law degree, a goal he expects to reach in two years.  He then plans to combine his legal knowledge with his engineering skills as a private engineering consultant.

Crowe and his wife, Gayle, are the parents of two grown daughters.  The couple plans to remain in their longtime home at Lake of The Pines.
