Welcome to Sun Valley General Improvement District

The District owns and maintains an estimated 100 miles of water mains, 120 miles of sewer mains, two sewer vaults, several pressure reducing vaults and pumping stations, and nine water storage water tanks. Since its inception, all service connections have been metered. In the early 1990s the District converted to an automated metering system.


For your convenience Sun Valley General Improvement District offers a Payment Drop Box in our front parking lot next to our flag pole. District staff checks the drop box daily at the start of each business day. We only accept checks or money order, NO CASH. If Late/Disconnect Payments are placed in the drop box customer is still subject to late fees and disconnection; if disconnected re-connection will be performed the next business day.


The District Office will be closed Monday, January 20, 2020 in observance of Martin Luther King, Jr. Day.


Keep Truckee Meadows Beautiful Christmas Tree Recycling Program provides community residents with an easy alternative to dumping trees in the landfill or- as is sometimes seen- in our community’s open spaces. KTMB partners with Washoe County Parks and Open Spaces, City of Reno, City of Sparks, and Truckee Meadows Fire Protection District on this program to ensure that trees are kept out of our open spaces, reducing the risk of fire in the summer months. For more information where to recycle your Christmas Tree, please visit KTMB website.


The District would like to remind you to prepare for freezing temperatures that could create frozen and/or possibly broken water pipes. A few simple precautions to take are to keep your plumber’s phone number handy, disconnect and drain outdoor hoses and swamp coolers, know where your master shut off valve is to your home, and make sure to insulate your water pipes or any water pipes that are exposed to the freezing temperatures. Please stop by the office to pick up a free “Winterizing Your Water Pipes” brochure or call and request one be mailed to you.
