Nevada Irrigation District Water Quality

From Mountain Division reservoirs, NID water flows through the Bowman-Spaulding Canal, via Fuller Lake, to PG&E’s Lake Spaulding. It is then routed down either the South Yuba Canal to Upper Deer Creek, Scotts Flat and the Nevada City-Grass Valley area, or down the PG&E Drum System along the Bear River where the water is used to generate power for NID and PG&E before supplying NID customers in southern Nevada County and Placer County.
