The Lyon County Board of Commissioners is scheduled to consider approval of a resolution this week calling for immediate re-opening of the Truckee Canal and cessation of efforts to close that waterway.

The draft resolution the board will consider this Thursday (February 21)is a result of the early January break in the canal, which runs through Fernley, carries water from the Truckee River to Lake Lahontan and which was established in the early 1900s by the Newlands Reclamation Project.

The commission meeting starts at 9 a.m. and is being held in the meeting room of the Silver Springs Community/Senior Center at 2945 Fort Churchill Road in Silver Springs.
