High Water and Potential Flooding

Due to the abnormally high snow pack and continued impactful storms,
Lahontan Reservoir could reach capacity much earlier than normal.
Precautionary drawdowns of water from the reservoir have therefore been
initiated. TCID and County Road crews have been working to clean the major
canals and the Carson River channel to accommodate initial water releases
that will gradually increase. The river and canals will be running at
maximum capacity for many months. We encourage all property owners along
the Carson River to take necessary precautions to minimize flooding and we
urge you to stay away from these waters and keep your children away from

As river flows in the Carson River increase, please contact TCID 423-2141
if you notice any water leaving the river channel or canal system. In the
coming weeks the County will ensure sand and sand bags are stockpiled in
the most vulnerable areas.

Updates to this information will be provided as the situation changes.
