Flood Advisory
NVC019-012230-
/O.EXT.KREV.FA.Y.0005.000000T0000Z-170401T2230Z/
/00000.N.DR.000000T0000Z.000000T0000Z.000000T0000Z.OO/
Lyon NV-
1134 AM PDT MON MAR 27 2017

The National Weather Service in Reno has extended the

* Flood Advisory for...
A Dam Release in...
Southern Lyon County in west central Nevada...

* Until 330 PM PDT Saturday

* Ongoing releases from Bridgeport Reservoir and Topaz Lake have
resulted in increased flows on both the East and West Forks of the
Walker River. These increased releases are a precautionary
measture intended to create additional storage space in the
reservoirs in preparation for high snowmelt runoff later this
spring.

* Water management adjustments will result in an increase in flow on
the West Walke from near Topaz Lake to the confluence. These flow
increases are not anticipated to result in impacts along the West
Walker.

* The flow below Bridgeport Reservoir along the East Walker is
expected to remain fairly constant and may result in minor
flooding along East Walker Road from the Strosnider Ditch to near
the confluence with the West Walker.

* Farther downstream, combined flows from the East and West Walker
will likely result in minor flooding below Yerington near where
Miller Lane crosses the river.

* Additional minor flooding is possible in mainly rural areas of
south central Lyon Couty, but impacts are expected to be minimal
unless flows are increased beyond the current levels. Check with
local officials for possible road closures or restrictions.

PRECAUTIONARY/PREPAREDNESS ACTIONS...

A Flood Advisory means river or stream flows are elevated and will
result in some flooding of low lying areas. Water will be swift and
dangerous, especially upstream along the East and West Forks of the
Walker River. Stay away or be swept away.
