Truckee Meadows Water Outlook Positive

Posted: Updated:

It's no secret these past few years have been dry and communities all around us are having to take extra steps to make sure everyone has enough water.

However, the Truckee Meadows Water Authority says that will not have to happen in the Truckee Meadows.

"We're not going to ask our customers do anything differently than they normally do, which is water responsibly" says Senior Hydrologist Bill Hauck.

Hauck says we are in a unique situation in the Truckee Meadows because we have Lake Tahoe and other reservoirs that feed directly to us.

Hauck says thanks to those snow storms we had in February we will have enough water running through the Truckee River to get us through Labor Day, which is the end of the high demand season.    

Hauck says T.M.W.A also takes proactive measures to make sure everyone gets the water they need, which includes moving water from the Truckee River to other areas of town.

"During the winter months we take Truckee River water, run it through our water treatment plant and actually inject that water back into ground water wells throughout the Truckee Meadows." Hauck says.

Hauck also points out that while no new conservation measures will need to be taken this year in the Truckee Meadows it is still important to water wisely.

T.M.W.A encourages everyone to stick to their assigned watering days. If your address ends in an even number you can water on Tuesdays, Thursdays and Saturdays. If your address ends in an odd number you can water on Wednesdays, Fridays and Sundays. No watering is permitted on Mondays.
