Areal Flood Advisory

Statement as of 9:31 AM PDT on March 23, 2017

Expires 6:30 PM EDT on March 29, 2017


The National Weather Service in Reno has extended the

* flood advisory for...
a dam release in...
southern Lyon County in west central Nevada...

* until 330 PM PDT Wednesday

* ongoing releases from Bridgeport Reservoir and Topaz Lake have
resulted in increased flows on both the east and West Forks of the
Walker River. These increased releases are a precautionary measure
intended to create storage space in the reservoirs to handle
increased runoff from snowmelt later this Spring.

* The increased flow below Bridgeport Reservoir is likely to result
in minor flooding along east Walker Road from the strosnider ditch
to near the confluence with the west Walker.

* Farther downstream, combined flows from the east and west Walker
will likely result in minor flooding below Yerington where Miller
Lane crosses the river.

* Additional minor flooding is possible in mainly rural areas of
south central Lyon County, but impacts are expected to be minimal
unless flows are increased beyond the current levels. Check with
local officials for possible Road closures or restrictions.


Precautionary/preparedness actions...

A flood advisory means river and stream flows are elevated and will
result in some flooding of low lying areas. Water will be swift and
dangerous, especially upstream along the east and West Forks of the
Walker River. Stay away or be swept away.
