Keep our Truckee River Clean!
The Truckee Meadows region 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 our stormwater is not treated, it can carry urban pollution directly into the River. Using Best Management Practices (BMPs) improves water quality and will ensure a cleaner environment and better quality of life for our children.
