The Truckee River is a complex and vital stream of water that flows from Lake Tahoe in California into Nevada and through the Truckee Meadows, crossing the boundaries of Reno, Sparks and Washoe County before completing its journey at Pyramid Lake.
One Truckee River (OTR) is a new collaboration of public and private partners working together to realize a Truckee River that flows clear and clean, quenches our thirst, sustains the river’s natural ecology, cultural resources and wildlife, and connects residents and visitors to unparalleled opportunities for recreation and regeneration.
One Truckee River will manage, protect and provide stewardship for the Truckee River across all jurisdictional boundaries. Nevada Land Trust and Keep Truckee Meadows Beautiful act as lead agencies with the assistance and cooperation of a large Truckee River stakeholder group to fundraise and develop the plan.
In September of 2016, the City of Reno, City of Sparks, and Washoe County unanimously adopted the One Truckee River Management Plan. This formal adoption ensures a commitment made to fund the local jurisdictions’ participation in and implementation of the plan’s elements.
