Water Storage


Reliable and safe water supply

0023The historic drought that persists across California starkly highlights the need for additional water storage in our region. Currently, NID’s water system relies too heavily on the water bank provided by the annual mountain snowpack. With warmer temperatures likely, NID needs mid-elevation storage that can capture runoff from rainstorms and snowstorms. Without this capability, NID will be unable to sufficiently collect and conserve water and prepare the region to weather extended droughts.

The Centennial Project will use the most advanced technology available, including many innovative approaches to habitat and wildlife protection, and will improve the overall health of our region’s watershed. New technologies will also improve water efficiency and conservation while at the same time increase supply and use flexibility.

“With a fourth year of drought reinforcing the need to invest in additional water storage capacity – both above and below ground – to improve the resiliency of California’s water system, we need to consider ways to make storage investments work to enhance the state’s overall water system.”
