Grant #86

Habitat Restoration Plan – UNR Main Station Field Laboratory Property

This project entails the development and completion of a habitat restoration plan for the University of Nevada’s 1,000 acre Main Station Field Property which borders the Truckee River east of McCarran Boulevard. The plan will identify and characterize the potential for restoration of the site relative to natural flora and fauna, with emphasis on property adjacent to the Truckee River and the future Southeast Connector Roadway.

TMWA Benefit:

Development and implementation of this plan will improve the health of Truckee River watershed and will mitigate future sediment loading on the Truckee River. The project is time critical with the pending design and construction of the Southeast Connector Project. TMWA benefits through reduction of non-point sources of contamination to the river system.
