Community Work Program—Pollution & Weed Control

Involves support to the Washoe County Sheriff’s Community Work Program to provide a full time Inmate Work Program Leader who would supervise inmate and community service work crews to clean the Truckee River Corridor and to protect trees along the river.  This work also involves the clean out and removal of homeless camps along the Truckee River.

TMWA Benefit:

This project provides a direct water quality benefit to the Truckee River upstream of TMWA intakes, particularly the clean-up of homeless camps which pose a contaminant threat to the Truckee River.
