One of the worst water seasons is finally over.
Late Tuesday night, the Truckee-Carson Irrigation District closed the Truckee Canal irrigation system, according to Project Manager Rusty Jardine.
He said the district hit its minimum pool requirement of 15,000-acre feet. In another blow, Jardine said the level of the Truckee River is too low to siphon off any addition water to replace losses suffered at Lahontan Reservoir due to evaporation and seepage.
