The outage for Phase 1 construction of the Truckee Canal Public Safety Improvement Project is complete and water deliveries to the Truckee Division have commenced. This meets Reclamation’s goal of not exceeding a 13-month canal outage during construction. The project, funded by President Biden’s Bipartisan Infrastructure Law and implemented in collaboration with the Truckee-Carson Irrigation District, includes lining approximately 3.5 miles of the earthen canal in the most vulnerable stretch in the City of Fernley. The project will significantly increase public safety and improve water supply reliability. Construction activities will continue on the project through the spring but should not affect canal operations.
