NRD Board Adopts Water Plan

The Board of Directors has responded to concerns expressed in February by several irrigators and eliminated possible funding through an occupation tax in a voluntary Integrated Management Plan adopted March 19. The plan, 18-months in the making, is designed to manage ground water and surface water to a sustainable balance that supports economic viability, environmental sustainability and safety. It is meant to be a useful tool in identifying available water supplies and managing water quantity to meet future water needs in the District.

The NRD thanks all who helped develop the plan, including our 20-member stakeholder group, focus group members, all who submitted input online through virtual town hall meetings, the web, social media and at public hearings and workshops. We feel the development of the Plan was truly an open process resulting in a valuable tool that will serve the District for many years to come.
