Mapserver

The City of Reno (and the Truckee Meadows Stormwater Committee) has provided watershed assessments as photo-documented field surveys, for the entire Truckee Meadows watershed. These are provided in an interactive mapserver, where you can click on either your region or creek of choice, in the Truckee Meadows. There are photos, descriptions of the creek reach conditions, and recommendations for restoration and watershed protection for each creek posted. Restoration will be an important component of integrated watershed management as our resources come under greater pressure through utilization, and tools are needed to evaluate priority sites to reduce loads of contaminants in the river.

Creeks and their information can be accessed by turning on navigation tools, once within the server. Watershed assessment information may be accessed two ways: through the name of the creek (top of site, choose "select creek") or by geographical area (top of site, choose "select region"). Within each creek page are photos, and by rolling over the blue buttons indicating sites of assessments, you'll uncover textual descriptions of the reaches, and tips for specific ways to restore that creek or protect waterways throughout our watershed.
