Water is a strong topic within Northern Nevada as it is very rare within the Silver State. Building a new community in Northern Nevada will take careful planning and skilled experts, and water is at the top of the list of things to organize. So, what will StoneGate Reno do about water within the master planned community near Peavine Mountain?
Truckee Meadows Water Authority (TMWA) will provide the water supply needed for the StoneGate Reno development in northwest Reno. A new transmission main will connect to a Truckee Meadows Water Authority 24-inch water main at the intersection of Lemmon Drive and North Virginia Street, south of U.S. 395. There are on-site springs which will supply water and improve water quality as well as increase groundwater infiltration.
StoneGate Reno is also working collaboratively with Washoe County Utility Division on developing a reclaimed water system for use in irrigating the common areas, augmenting the water features throughout the community, as well as, potentially irrigating the front yards. Since this will also be a master planned community, great efforts will be taken to zero landscape the common areas and yards to ensure water is not misused while also showcasing the beauty that is within Northern Nevada.
