The government has released a final environmental study on a comprehensive management plan for the Truckee River, a key milestone in 17 years of negotiations over the river’s future.
The U.S. Department of Interior and California Department of Water Resources report concludes there will be no significant adverse impacts from the Truckee River Operating Agreement.
“This is a huge step for everyone involved,” said Allen Biaggi, director of the Nevada Department of Conservation and Natural Resources. “It resolves many of the water issues on the Truckee River and they have been very contentious. We’ve been working very hard to get to this point.”
