With a thick blanket of snow still covering the mountains and warm temperatures (hopefully) on their way, water managers are planning for epic runoff and high volumes of water in downstream areas. No flooding is expected on the Truckee River this spring. Historical records show the river doesn’t stand much threat of flooding after mid-February, which is good news for Reno residents. But with all-time snowpack records across the region, expect to see extremely high water levels in area waterways well into June, as well as extremely full reservoirs. Over the winter, the Carson and Walker basins broke snowpack records dating back to 1981.
