Grant #207

Second Truckee River Cleanup Crew

Project Description:

Funding will provide a second dedicated crew to remove trash, debris, noxious weeds and overgrowth from the banks of Truckee River and direct tributaries within City of Reno. This will expand current efforts from 4 days to 7 days per week.


  1. Remove trash and debris from the banks of the Truckee River within Reno’s city limits, focusing on public property along the Truckee River Path, including City, County and State property.
  2. Improve these areas so that our community members feel safe and comfortable when using the river areas.


  1. Results will be measured by number of bags of trash and debris, shopping carts, posts, appliances, furniture and other materials removed from the project area.

TMWA Benefit:

This request supports Priority VI – Stewardship by funding a crew dedicated to remove trash, litter, illegal campsites and other refuse along the banks of the Truckee River and direct tributaries within Reno City limits, primarily upstream of the Glendale Treatment Plant.
