Areal Flood Advisory

Statement as of 3:07 PM PDT on April 26, 2017

Expires 1:00 PM EDT on May 02, 2017


The National Weather Service in Reno has issued a

* flood advisory for...
a dam floodgate release in...
Placer County in central California...
Nevada County in northern California...
southern Washoe County in western Nevada...

* until 245 PM PDT Tuesday

* water management officials have increased the flow out of Lake
Tahoe on the afternoon of April 26th. The increase in flow will
lead to minor flooding along the Truckee River from the Lake Tahoe
dam to Truckee and abnormally high flows along the river through
Reno and Sparks. These high flows will likely continue into early
Summer.

* Impacts... minor flooding will cover sections of the Truckee-Tahoe
bike path along Highway 89 as well as portions of the path through
the Reno-Sparks area. Some backyards, basements and campgrounds
along the river near Highway 89 may be inundated by the high
flows. Campgrounds in the area are closed.

* These high flows will continue for an indefinite amount of time as
officials manage the water in the Truckee Reservoir system in
anticipation of higher snowmelt flows in may and June. Officials are
constantly monitoring the high flows and flood impacts.

* This will be the highest flow on the Truckee River from the Lake
Tahoe dam to Bear Creek at Alpine Meadows since February 1999.

Precautionary/preparedness actions...

The river is powerful, fast and cold. Please stay clear for safety.
Any unanticipated increase in flows could lead to flooding in areas
near the river.

The National Weather Service in Reno has extended the

* flood advisory for...
a dam floodgate release in...
west central Churchill County in west central Nevada...

* until 1000 am PDT Tuesday

* flooding near the Carson River and canal system around Fallon
remains possible through Spring and early Summer.

* Releases from Lahontan Reservoir will maintain high flows on the
Carson River and canal system around Fallon. These high flows will
continue for an indefinite amount of time as the irrigation
district draws down the Reservoir in anticipation of higher
snowmelt flows in may and June. Officials are constantly
monitoring the high flows and channel conditions.

* Bafford Lane was closed to improve water flow. It may take until
the Summer for the Road is safely restored. Additional work in and
around Fallon is likely to improve channel capacity and minimize
flooding concerns.

Precautionary/preparedness actions...

The river is powerful, fast and cold. Please stay clear for safety.
Any unanticipated increase in flows or changes to the river and
canal channels could lead to flooding in areas near the river and
canal system.
