Truckee Meadows Regional Storm Water Permit Coordinating Committee

The Truckee Meadows Regional Stormwater Quality Management Program is a comprehensive program comprised of efforts by the governments of Reno, Sparks, and Washoe County, together with private citizens, to reduce the pollution associated with urban runoff in the Truckee Meadows.

This program is required by the National Pollutant Discharge Elimination System (NPDES) permit issued jointly to the Cities of Reno, Sparks, and Washoe County.

Truckee Meadows Watershed Committee (TMWC)

The Truckee Meadows Watershed Committee (TMWC) is a cooperative effort of the City of Reno, City of Sparks, and Washoe County, and is comprised of two representatives from each. The committee was created for the management of a regional storm water discharge permit mandated by the Clean Water Act, and issued by the Nevada Division of Environmental Protection (NDEP). The TMWC is committed to the development and implementation of the Regional Stormwater Quality Management Program to fulfill the regulatory requirements of the storm water discharge permit, and to the protection of the Truckee River Watershed.
