NID Mission Statement
The District will provide a dependable, quality water supply; continue to be good stewards of the watersheds, while conserving the available resources in our care.
NID is a diversified water resource district that supplies both treated drinking water and irrigation water to nearly 25,000 homes, farms and businesses in Nevada and Placer counties in the foothills of Northern California’s Sierra Nevada Mountains.
NID collects water from the mountain snowpack and stores it in an extensive system of 10 reservoirs. As water flows to customers in the foothills, it is used to generate clean hydroelectric energy and to provide public recreational opportunities.
NID is an independent California special district governed by an elected board.
