The District encourages water conservation year-round even when we have a wet winter like we experienced last year. The District recommends following Truckee Meadows Water Authority’s schedule to water three times per week as follows:

Odd Addresses:    Wednesday, Friday and Sunday
Even Addresses:  Tuesday, Thursday and Saturday

For water conservation tips visit the District’s website.



The District would like to remind customers that it is illegal to hook-up your water and/or sewer line to any kind of recreation vehicle for living purposes. It is a violation of the District and of Northern Nevada Public Health Department. The violation will be reported to Washoe County Code Enforcement, non-compliance may result in additional fees and/or service disconnect. If you have any questions regarding illegal hook-ups, please contact the District office.



The District is participating in the Keep Truckee Meadows Beautiful Great Community Cleanup again on April 27th. This annual event helps Sun Valley clean up illegal dumping and encourages local community members to join in and volunteer. Last year over 48,500 pounds of litter and 71 tires were removed from Sun Valley. For more information or to sign up to participate, visit KTMB.org or call (775) 851-5185.
