RENO, NV - Truckee Meadows Water Authority is asking all its customers, beginning at the end of July, to reduce outdoor water use by 10% and not water from 11AM-7PM each day. This follows a very dry winter with low Sierra snowpack.

TMWA says it will always ask for extra conservation when mandated Truckee River flows cannot be sustained and drought reserves are needed.

In a news release, TMWA says it has planned for these types of dry cycles and will be able to use its upstream drought reserves to augment reduced river flows, as well as use groundwater reserves, to meet customer demands.

Late July is the time when customers can make a difference by conserving water, which will reduce the amount of drought reserves TMWA needs to release.
