Abstract : This office report has been prepared to present basic hydrologic data and criteria for the Truckee River Basin, California and Nevada. This data is intended for use in feasibility studies for providing additional flood protection to the Truckee Meadows area at and below Reno, Nevada. This report discusses the hydrologic characteristics of the basin, presents an analysis of flow-frequencies, and describes the development of standard project and probable maximum floods resulting from winter type rain storms and summer-fall type cloudbursts. An analysis of spring snowmelt floods is not required for this study since these types of floods are essentially non-damaging in the Truckee Meadows area under existing conditions of upstream regulation.
