USBR Water Conservation Plan - DRAFT

The City of Fernley seeks to be a conscious and efficient water user in the arid west.  As such, the city has water conservation programs and plans in place.  A Water Conservation Plan (WCP) DRAFT was prepared in accordance with section 210 of the Reclamation Reform Act (RRA), per the United Stated Bureau of Reclamation (USBR) 2020 Standard Criteria for Evaluating Water Management Plans.  In 2009, the city entered into an agreement with the USBR, which established the procedures the city will follow before using the Truckee Canal to deliver its Claim 3 municipal water. Pursuant to that agreement, the City of Fernley was required to submit a water conservation plan to the USBR for approval. The previous WCP was approved by the USBR on March 6, 2018 after it was presented for public comment and published in the Federal Register by the USBR.  For the 2022 update to the City of Fernley Water Conservation Plan the USBR has asked the city to administer its own program for public comment.  For this process the Public Works Department has published the document online for the general public to provide input/comment.  The USBR Water Conservation Plan – DRAFT document will be open for a minimum of 30 days for review, and is planned to be closed on September 30, 2022. Public comments about this plan are encouraged.

The USBR Water Conservation Plan - DRAFT can be found on the city website at: https://www.cityoffernley.org/111/Water or directly at: WCP Draft
