Groundwater Storage - Projects Across Five Hydrogeologic Regions

TMWA’s groundwater management through aquifer storage and recovery (ASR) has resulted in 35,000 AF of cumulative storage since the program began in 1993. Since we can’t predict how much snow we will receive, groundwater storage is like putting water in a bank. Through both active and passive recharge of aquifers, TMWA expects to almost double its groundwater storage to 8,000 AFY by 2022. Read about ASR and find out about case studies of ASR in action here.

Golf Greens to Revert Back to Wetlands at Rosewood Lakes

The Truckee Meadows Parks Foundation is leading the rehabilitation of the property formerly known as Rosewood Lakes Golf Course.
