NBID began as the Naglee Burk Irrigation Association in October 1912, a non-profit organization providing water service to landowners' farms and homes northwest of the City of Tracy. Over a century later, the District continues this vital purpose.
NBID provides water service to over 4,000 acres of farm land within the District's boundaries through riparian rights in Old River and Tom Paine Slough, as well as a pre-1914 appropriative right in Old River.
The water NBID provides supports California's robust agricultural economy by enabling the cultivation of a variety of crops, such as alfalfa, asparagus, tomatoes, corn (sweet, grain, and silage), cucumbers, melons, onions, peppers, potatoes, pumpkins, safflower, beans, carrot seeds, and forage crops.
Our Board encourages landowners seeking to install irrigation facilities on their property to submit the plans to prior to installation for Board review and approval.
