It’s Raining! Turn off your sprinklers for a cycle or two.

Water runs off over-irrigated lawn in Reno

In northwest Reno I’ve gotten about 1/2″ of rain from this rainstorm surprise.

That, combined with cool weather, means it is a good time to cancel your sprinklers for a couple of water days.  I’m going for it.  You should, too.

About Dennis Ghiglieri

My concern for the Truckee River grew over the years. It started with picking up trash and supporting better water quality. I helped create the "living river"plan with other citizens on the Community Flood Coalition; a plan to reduce flood impacts to infrastructure through river restoration and protection of the floodplain. I understand how critical the Truckee River is to the environment – and economy – of our entire region. I'm hoping that through these pages we can all understand our connection to the Truckee River and why we need to protect it.
