RENO, Nev. (775 Times, NV Globe) – In advance of a winter storm that might deliver the Reno region one to four inches of rain, Washoe County is making its final preparations.

Local authorities are striving to warn individuals who live close to the Truckee River of the potential risk it might bring, even though the river is predicted to peak below flood levels.

County Homeless Services anticipates a rise in visitors to the Nevada Cares Campus as well. Here, locals may check whether the shelter has any open beds, and a day use space is available.

Swan Lake and Lemmon Valley residents are worried about suffering flooding similar to what wracked their communities in 2017. The water level in the lake is presently 20% lower than it was during the floods five years ago, according to the county, which claims that the lake is in a different condition than it was in 2017.

The county has invested more than $10 million in flood mitigation in the Lemmon Valley region since those storms.

Around the county, 13 sandbag stations have been set up, and when required throughout the storm, they will be restocked by the end of the workweek.

Those locations are as follows:

  • Lemmon Valley, Lemmon Drive and Pompe Way
  • Lemmon Valley, TMFR Station 440, 130 Nectar Street
  • Silver Knolls Volunteer Fire Station, 11525 Red Rock Road
  • Golden Valley Park (Hillview entrance), 7490 Hillview Drive
  • Washoe County Operations Yard, 3101 Longley Lane
  • Highland Ranch Parkway 1 miles west of Pyramid Hwy
  • Belli Ranch, Blue Heron Circle and Warrior Lane
  • Toll Road and Geiger Grade
  • Pleasant Valley, Andrew Lane and Paddlewheel Lane

  • East Washoe Valley, Eastlake Blvd and Gander Lane
  • West Washoe Valley, TMFR Station 30, 3905 Old Hwy 395

Over the weekend, road personnel will be ready. The county is requesting that people clean up their trash and maintain pipelines and roadside ditches free of big objects.
