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. The proposed project would be located in Washoe County, Nevada. Construction is estimated for a two-year period from 2023 to 2025, pending environmental approval. NRCS will prepare an environmental document (as an EA/EIS) as required by the National Environmental Policy Act (NEPA), the Council on Environmental Quality (CEQ), and the USDA NEPA implementing regulations.
