19. Public Works
Staff Summary: Staff has been working with Douglas County, the Town of Minden, and the Indian Hills General Improvement District regarding a regional water supply system that connects all the entities together. A study of how to connect the systems has been conducted and staff and consultants will present the study to the Board and request the Board accept the report. Staff will then develop Interlocal Agreements to begin implementation of the study recommendations. Carson City owns water rights within the Carson Valley, and the regional system would supply those water rights to the city for distribution to its users. Additionally Vidler Water Company may buy water rights from Minden and will need to transmit the water through the City and therefore an agreement with Vidler may also be necessary.
