Water is very important factor in land buying decisions.  Nevada County is blessed with abundant water supplies, perhaps the best of all Sierra foothill counties.  Both the towns of Grass Valley and Nevada City operate drinking water systems.  The Nevada Irrigation District (NID) supplies treated drinking water to the more populated areas and irrigation water in agricultural areas.  Homes away from the developed water system are supplied by private wells.
