TMWA Senior Hydrologist
As the weather heats up in the Truckee Meadows, we’re seeing the expected, seasonal increase in customer water demand. Last week’s average demand reached 97 million gallons a day and we also hit our highest one-day volume so far this year with 103.8 million gallons on Sunday, January 8. Overall consumption is very much on par with last year, at 99.9% of 2013 levels. Truckee River flow at the CA/NV state line was running at 650 cubic feet per second Monday morning.
If you would like more information on our area’s current water situation, I recommend taking a look at TMWA General Manager Mark Foree’s recent “Your Turn” article in the Reno Gazette Journal: click here.
