Truckee Storage Project

The primary features of the Humboldt Project developed by Reclamation are the Rye Patch Dam and Reservoir, and the Battle Mountain Water Development and Collection System.  Rye Patch Dam was completed in 1936 to provide supplemental and carryover storage for use on the Pershing County Water Conservation District irrigated lands.  The Humboldt River flows are extremely variable and carryover storage is essential for the 30,000 acres of irrigated lands located near Lovelock, Nevada.

Facility: Boca Dam and Reservoir - Boca Dam and Reservoir are located on the Little Truckee River about 27 miles southwest of Reno, Nevada.
