    The Project

    • Sharing the River

      Nevada is a desert and water is a precious resource.  The Truckee River is the major source of water in Northwest Nevada.  Farmers, Native Americans, environmentalist, city dwellers, and recreationist all clamor for a piece of the Truckee River. And there just isn't enough water to go around!

      Below you will find a general history of the Truckee River, a history of the Newlands Project that still affects us 100 years later, and resources explaining the need and rights of each group. 

      Water is an issue that will only become more critical and complex as time marches and our students need to be informed so they can make the right decisions when they become the leaders of our community.  The resources below will give you and your students the information they need to begin a conversation on water in Nevada.

      One way that this can be used in class is to divide the class into seven teams with each team becoming the 'expert' in one of these areas.  A class conversation can lead to the understanding of the complex issues surrounding the Truckee River.
