Frequently Asked Questions

WHY IS MEMBERSHIP IN THE FRIENDS OF THE HISTORIC TRUCKEE CANAL SO IMPORTANT?

There is strength in numbers. Even if your lifestyle doesn't allow you the free time to attend all of the meetings, hearings, etc in person, the membership reflects your participatory support. This group can only be effective if the membership numbers are at their maximum. The courts and other government entities will listen if EVERY SINGLE RESIDENT in the Newlands Project area shows their concerns over the management of our water resource.

HOW DOES REALLOCATING WATER OUTSIDE OF THE NEWLANDS PROJECT AFFECT ME?

The water in the Historic Truckee Canal affects EVERY SINGLE RESIDENT in the Newlands Project area. Our water resources are dependent upon the continuous flow of water in this canal. This includes the surface water rights you may own to irrigate, the ground water that sustains your domestic wells, and even the municipality water delivered to your home. "Truckee River water provides 22,500 af/yr or 75% of the annual water budget to the Fernley/Wadsworth basins from canal seepage and irrigation recharge."

WHERE IS OUR WATER GOING? WHERE HAS IT BEEN GOING? TO PYRAMID LAKE? IF SO, HOW MUCH WATER DO WE OWE THEM, HOW MUCH HAS BEEN REPAID?

The answer to these and many other questions can be answered at our meetings. We are putting every effort into providing these answers for every resident of the Newlands Project Area. Join the Friends of the Truckee Canal today and receive the benefits of having access to the answers you seek. As a member you can ask the questions that concern you and get the answers you expect from people that are directly involved with each issue.

I HAVE INACTIVE WATER RIGHTS, WHAT CAN I DO WITH THEM?

There are a few options available that may secure that the water resource stays within the Newlands Project. If you care about keeping the integrity of this community in tact, you may wish to utilize one of these options. The City of Fernley is currently supporting a Water Rights Dedication Incentive Program. This program is designed to limit your expenses and protect the water from future reallocation.
