Local Government Oversight Committee

“In June 1996 The Cities of Reno and Sparks and Washoe County negotiated the Water Quality Settlement Agreement (WQSA) with the Pyramid Lake Paiute Tribe, the U.S. Department of Justice, the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency and the Nevada Division of Environmental Protection for the purchase of water rights to be used to augment flows in the Truckee River to improve water quality.  The WQSA obligated the three local governments to spend $12,000,000 for the acquisition of Truckee River water rights.  The Local Government Oversight Committee (LGOC) consists of a representative from each local government appointed by the City or the County Manager to implement the objectives of the WQSA.”  

Membership

The committee is comprised of representatives from Cities of Reno and Sparks and Washoe County.
