NID to Review new Plan for Water Proposal 

This Wednesday, NID's Water and Hydroelectric Operations (WHO) Committee will review the new process proposal to update the Raw Water Master Plan (RWMP), also known as the Plan for Water. As a reminder, the RWMP is important because the updated hydrology, water supply and demand estimates from the Plan will feed directly into NID's environmental review of the Centennial Dam Project. 

Highlights of the proposal include:

  • Review of the data by a third-party Technical Expert Panel
  • Robust diverse Stakeholder Engagement 
  • Analysis of the American River Basin Study

SYRCL applauds NID for continuing to prioritize this key planning document and looks forward to hearing more details. 

Have questions? Join us this Wednesday at 9 a.m.
