Officials with Churchill County, Bureau of Reclamation, TCID and the City of Fallon briefed citizens regarding the expected high water/spring thaw events facing the local community this spring and early summer, noting that while there are some similarities to what was experienced in 2017, there are also significant differences and residents need to prepare now, especially if they live along the Carson River.
