Project Details
Title: Truckee Canal Extraordinary Operation and Maintenance Environmental Impact Statement
Summary: The purpose is to improve public safety by reducing the risk of a Canal breach. Reclamation needs to take action to evaluate alternatives that will enable the Canal operator, the Truckee Carson Irrigation District (TCID), to safely operate the Truckee Canal and deliver Newlands Project water in compliance with operating criteria and procedures. Additional restrictions on Canal operations may be necessary without taking actions or initiating risk-reducing repairs. Reclamation or TCID are proposing to complete improvements of the Canal facilities.
