6:45 pm
kids need to know." slicker mcquicker is going through an update on his looks right now but she's already put him through 50 adventures she hopes to see in schools one of these days for kids to learn from. her other books are already available at buy nevada first and through amazon. the truckee meadows water authority has about 90 wells around reno and sparks -- and they're using about 20 of them to put water back into the ground. something they've been doing since 1993. and as paul nelson shows us, it's just one more way to prepare for dry years. river flowing the truckee river is one of the areas biggest sources of water. and during the fall and winter months, it's used to rejuvenate another source. miller "we're looking at
6:46 pm
the aquifer, putting water back into the system." winter water demand is about 25 percent of what it is during the summer -- and that allows tmwa to pump about 10 million gallons of treated water into the ground every day. miller "so we're able to use the excess treatment capacity, produce more treated surface water, spread it throughout the distribution system, and put it back into 20 different sites across town." nelson "during times when tmwa needs to draw water from the aquifer, they come to this well and pump the water through this pipe, but during times like we have right now, when there's less demand and more surface water, they bring the water through this bypass and pump it right back down to the ground." miller "it's invaluable. it's just another asset of our water supply that we can rely upon during times of need." miller says in the last 20 years -- tmwa has never had to pump as much groundwater as it did last year because of the drought. miller "we maximize surface water use when we have it available, but in times of drought, like we had last year, we rely heavily on our groundwater." more than 300 gallons of water is pumped into the ground, every minute.
