Keep our Truckee River Clean!
The Truckee Meadows has two drainage systems–the sanitary sewer system and the storm drain system, known as a Municipal Separate Storm Sewer System (MS4). The MS4 is designed to carry rainwater away from city streets and into the Truckee River. Because the system contains no filters, it also can carry urban pollution directly into the Truckee River. Best Management Practices (BMPs) will ensure a cleaner environment and a better quality of life for our children.
