Lower Cascade Canal Modernization Project
Document Type
NOP - Notice of Preparation

Document Description
The primary purpose of this project is to increase the reliability and capacity of raw water delivery to existing and anticipated future customers in the LLC and UGVC service areas including two major NID water treatment plants (Loma Rica and Elizabeth George). Additionally, NID is commited to improving and protecting the raw water quality to both water treatment plants as well as lowering its operations and maintenance costs. NID also seeks to reduce losses of water occuring from the existing canal. Water losses occur through canal seepage, vegetative uptake, and direct evaporation from the water surface. These losses have historically reduced the total amount of available water within NID's cascade system.
