Truckee River Water Rights Acquisition Program, Nevada

To carry out the goals of the Truckee River Water Quality Settlement Agreement of 1996, GBLW has worked with the Pyramid Lake Paiute Tribe, Washoe County and the Cities of Reno and Sparks to facilitate the acquisition of over 11,000 acre-feet of water rights to augment in-stream flows in the Truckee River to improve water quality and to maintain and preserve the lower Truckee River and Pyramid Lake for fish and wildlife, including threatened and endangered species. GBLW’s work to acquire Truckee River Water Rights is ongoing.
