For Immediate Release
Reno, Nevada. Aug. 20, 2014. A series of public workshops is scheduled to address rules and rates regarding the consolidation of Washoe County’s water utility and South Truckee Meadows General Improvement District (STMGID) with Truckee Meadows Water Authority (TMWA). The consolidation is scheduled to be completed by Dec. 31, 2014.
As directed by the Nevada State Legislature, the goals of the water utility consolidation are to achieve lower cost of service while also allowing for a “conjunctive use” approach to area water-resource management and that no customer group will be negatively impacted.
Water rates will not change for any customer, but the TMWA Board of Directors must adopt the current rate schedules for current Washoe County and STMGID customers. As part of that process, workshops have been scheduled pursuant to TMWA administrative procedures. If you have any questions, please attend one of the following meetings:
- Mt. Rose/Galena Fan Domestic Well Mitigation Program: Aug. 26, 2014, 6 p.m.
- STMGID Rates: Sept. 8, 2014, 5:30 p.m.
- Washoe County Water Utility Rates: Sept. 9, 2014, 5:30 p.m.
- Rules of Service Changes and Other Rates: Sept. 10, 2014, 5:30 p.m.
All workshops will be held at TMWA’s main office at 1355 Capital Blvd., Reno, NV 89502.
