...The Flood Warning continues for the following rivers in

  West Walker River Near Coleville affecting Mono County
...The Flood Warning continues for the following rivers in Nevada...

  Walker River Near Mason affecting Lyon County

Temperatures returning to near normal and depleting snow contribution
area will decrease headwater flows slowly this week in the upper
portions of the Walker River basin. This will result in slowly
decreasing flows along the West Fork of the Walker River.

Increased releases from Bridgeport Reservoir will maintain high flowson
the East Walker River. Increased releases from Topaz Lake will also continue the high flows on the West Walker River below Topaz Lake.

As a result, flows into and below the Mason-Yerington area on the
mainstem Walker River will remain high through the week. Flows will remain high through Mason and Yerington with levels possible reaching the crest seen on June 22nd. Based on the latest river data, continued prolonged minor flooding is likely through Mason/Yerington with moderate flooding below Yerington through the Wabuska area.
