About the Highland Canal Storm Drain Project:

The City of Reno, Truckee Meadows Water Authority and Washoe County are partnering on a project designed to capture and convey stormwater in a constructed collection system to reduce sources of stormwater pollution into the Highland Canal.

The canal flows to the Chalk Bluff Water Treatment Facility, which treats and distributes water to the region. This project will involve underground trenching, which includes the placement of approximately 3,600 feet of new storm drain pipe.
