Flood Advisory

Lyon NV-
748 PM PDT TUE MAR 21 2017

...THE FLOOD ADVISORY FOR A DAM RELEASE REMAINS IN EFFECT UNTIL 330
PM PDT THURSDAY FOR SOUTHERN LYON COUNTY...

* Ongoing releases from Bridgeport Reservoir and Topaz Lake have
  resulted in increased flows on both the East and West Walker
  Rivers. These increased releases are a precautionary measure
  intended to create storage space in the reservoirs to handle
  increased runoff from snowmelt later this spring. Releases were
  increased a little more Tuesday evening from Topaz.

* The increased flow below Bridgeport Reservoir is likely to 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 where Miller
  Lane crosses the river. Further increased flows could result in
  the Walker River near Mason reaching flood stage later this week.

* Additional minor flooding is possible in mainly rural areas of
  south central Lyon County, 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, or ponding
of water in urban or other areas is occurring or is imminent.
