PROJECT OVERVIEW

The United States Department of Agriculture-Natural Resources Conservation Service (USDA-NRCS) is proposing a project (Proposed Project) sponsored by the Washoe County Water Conservation District (WCWCD) on behalf of the Steamboat Canal & Irrigation Company (SCIC) to use federal funds to make improvements within the Truckee River Watershed to provide flood protection and improve agricultural water management within SCIC's system.
