Landmark video explains complicated issue in simple terms

(Submitted news) — The  Truckee Meadows Water Authority (TMWA) and KNPB Channel 5 Public Broadcasting present “Taming the Turbulent Waters,” a half-hour documentary celebrating the historic signing of the Truckee River Operating Agreement (TROA), which occurred on Sept. 6, 2008. The next airing is Nov. 23 at 7:30 p.m. on Ch. 5.

“Taming the Turbulent Waters” will air this November and December on Reno’s KNPB and PBS stations across the west. The program explains the more than 20-year history of TROA, including how U.S. Sen. Harry Reid brought all parties to the negotiating table, and the benefits to the water system and to residents of the Truckee Meadows. It includes interviews with Sen. Reid, TROA negotiators and representatives from the signatory parties.

The documentary was produced by Arrowhead Productions in conjunction with TMWA and Sen. Harry Reid’s office.
