Grass Valley, Calif. May 23, 2018 – The Nevada Irrigation District (NID) Board of Directors adopted an addendum to the Combie Reservoir Sediment and Mercury Removal Project, and encumbered funds for the Iron Horse/Brewer Road Waterline Extension project during its May 23 meeting.
Present were President William Morebeck, Vice President John H. Drew, and Directors Nancy Weber, Nick Wilcox and Scott Miller.
The Board voted unanimously to adopt an addendum to the Combie Reservoir Sediment and Mercury Removal Project that includes a modification to allow a dry removal process to supplement the wet removal process during the low water season. This will better allow NID to achieve the planned removal objectives of 150,000 to 200,000 tons. Read more here.
In other NID matters, the Board unanimously agreed to encumber funds for the Iron Horse/Brewer Road District Financed Waterline Extension project. Read more about the project here.
