Possible Flooding Prompts UNR to Move Animals to Safety
The University of Nevada, Reno has instituted its contingency plans, in response to flooding forecasted to potentially impact the University's Main Station Field Laboratory on S. McCarran Boulevard in east Reno. The 380 animals at the Main Station facility are being moved to safe and higher ground.
The 86 sheep have already been moved, using stock trailers, to the University's 80-acre Valley Road Agricultural Experiment Station, and staff have been moving the 285 cattle at the Main Station facility since yesterday. The cattle will all be on high ground by later today.
Staff will remain on site throughout the storm and flooding event to monitor water levels and animals. The University is participating in and monitoring the event through the Regional Emergency Operations Center which has been activated in response to the flood event.
