This website page has been established to describe the History of Flooding on the Truckee River, as part of our Reno High-Water Mark initiative. 
We have been working diligently to bring about this flood awareness project in order to create a lasting monument, that will serve to educate the public for years to come. As it stands, these signs, and culminating event will commemorate the 25th and 5th anniversary of the 1997 and 2017 flood events in Reno. This High-Water Mark set of signs were unveiled in Wingfield Park, Reno on May 20, 2022. More images to follow.
