Reid Plans To Sign Truckee River Water Plan

RENO, Nev. (AP) - U.S. Sen. Harry Reid says he will attend a September signing of a water-sharing agreement aimed at settling a century of disputes between Nevada and California.
Reid called the Truckee River Operating Agreement one of the most important deals he's ever negotiated. The agreement is scheduled to be signed Sept. 6 in Sparks.
The agreement provides storage for drought-year water supplies in Sierra reservoirs for years to come for the Reno and Sparks area.
Officials say that storage will help meet demand in drought years when Truckee Meadows Water Authority is providing up to 119,000 acre-feet of water a year to customers.
The plan already is in place and working under an interim agreement approved several years ago.
