Nevada County’s Water Board To Talk Rate Hike, Raw Water Master Plan

Nevada County’s water district is taking baby steps in its effort to build a more inclusive community input process for determining its water needs over the next 50 years. The Nevada Irrigation District board of directors last fall hired a consultant to lead the stakeholder process to update its Raw Water Master Plan, to the tune of $800,000. But pushback from the public and cost-conscious directors led to terminating that contract and starting over.
