A Regional Collaborative Effort to Research and Realize Innovative Water Supply Options and Advanced Water Treatment Technologies for Northern Nevada

PioneersFrom the time pioneers first settled in the Truckee Meadows, having a sustainable water supply was critical. Initially it was about agriculture and economic development but eventually issues of recreation and environmental protection became priorities. As a high-desert community, these needs fostered deep appreciation for the value of water in the Truckee Meadows and surrounding region, and has shaped sustainable water management practices through conserving, recycling, and storing water for the future. Developing innovative solutions to manage water for tomorrow’s generations is both a tradition and a responsibility that has become a hallmark of our community’s approach to water leadership and water resource management.

Through a combination of partnerships, we are presently engaged in three key feasibility study projects:

The A+ Advanced Purified Water Treatment Feasibility Study to evaluate and determine if advanced purified water can provide long-term benefits for our region’s water future

The American Flat Advanced Purified Water Demonstration Project will test the feasibility and operational aspects of aquifer storage and recovery (ASR) of advanced purified water, through a small-scale demonstration project.

The Palomino Farms Sustainable Water Resource Feasibility Study to explore the coordinated use of surface water, groundwater, and recycled water.
