Truckee Meadows Water Authority (TWMA) invites the public to its Smart About Water Day, a free event on Saturday, May 4, at the California Building in Idlewild Park. From 10 a.m. – 2 p.m., regional water experts will offer information on projects, plans and actions that contribute to the overall state of our water in the Truckee Meadows.  

    TMWA’s highly skilled staff of operators, scientists and engineers will be there with information and interactive displays for the community to explore. For those wanting to know more about the state of our water, short talks on topics regarding snowpack, long-term water resource planning and future infrastructure projects are scheduled. Landscape and irrigation workshops and tree tours will be featured as well.  

    To provide a complete picture of water in the Truckee Meadows, many other agencies will be represented, including Truckee Meadows Regional Planning, Truckee Meadows Water Reclamation Facility, Truckee River Flood Management Authority and the Western Regional Water Commission. In addition, other nonprofit partners will be on site, such as OneTruckeeRiver and The Nature Conservancy.  

    With all this water expertise under one roof, it will be a great learning opportunity for the whole family. Sierra Nevada Journeys will present watershed awareness activities in which kids can become scientists at an interactive, water-quality testing exhibit. TMWA’s big rigs will also be on display, and TMWA operators will show kids and adults how the equipment works.  Kids will be given a passport to acquire stamps at each education booth. If completed, the kids will win TMWA prizes!

    For those who would like to see everything the event has to offer and make lunch plans, several local food trucks will be on site selling some of our community’s best mobile-food offerings (vegan and gluten-free options included). For a list of food trucks, scheduled water talks and more updates as the event gets closer, visit www.tmwa.com/2019 for the latest information.
