Water Reallocation of the Carson River

by John W. Bird, Univ of Nevada, United States,

Document Type: Proceeding Paper

Part of: Optimizing the Resources for Water Management


The federal courts have not been able to allocate the waters of the Carson or Truckee Rivers in such a manner as to satisfy all the users. As a result, there have been a number of suits for reallocation of the waters; some of these were based on reserved rights and were in conflict with other federal project claims. The negotiation process is the only real hope available to water users on the two streams. It may be successful since each party is involved in the process and has a say in the negotiations. The process will not be finished until all parties agree to all the terms. Then final reallocations of the waters of the two rivers may be completed.
