The local Emergency Operations Center established a High-Water Call Center as a one-stop source of information during the current high-water emergency which is expected to last into early summer.
The Call Center number is (775)867-5923 and it will be staffed weekdays from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. starting on Monday, March 20.
By calling this number, residents can get information on Lahontan Reservoir water levels, the availability of sandbags, County road closures, weather information, numbers to report river/canal or road blockages and if needed, evacuation and shelter information for people and livestock.
Staffing hours and days may change to meet demand as the high-water season progresses.
