RENO, Nev. (MyNews4.com & KRNV) -- As low as our current snowpack is, it is still enough to give us a good water supply this summer.

Truckee Meadows Water Authority says a series of storms in February really boosted our area's water supply. Earlier this year, they were preparing for possibly having river flows dip below projected levels sometime in June.

But the latest projected river flows show there will be just enough water to make it through peak summer demand months. "The latest hydrology and the latest model runs are showing that we're going to have normal river flows through Labor Day and into early September, which means we won't be taking any additional conservation measures this year," said TMWA Senior Hydrologist Bill Hauck.

If those projections are not accurate and river flows to fall out or dip below projected levels prior to Labor Day, water officials say they are prepared.
