TOPIC

Truckee River Flood Control Project

ABSTRACT

The Vista Narrows Project is located at the east end of Sparks where the Truckee River exits the valley and drains into the canyon area. The project includes constructing a U.S. Army Corps of Engineers standard levee on the north bank of the river and excavating river terracing on the south and north sides of the river. The Vista Narrows Project will replace the existing Sparks Industrial berm with a levee. The river terracing will help to reconnect the river to the overbank floodplain by allowing more frequent flood flows to flood the overbank terrace areas, lowering flood depths upstream in the Truckee Meadows and passing additional flood flow downstream.
