Walker River Basin

August 1995

Rain/Rain-on-Snow Event

Due to near-record snowpack in the Sierra Nevada Mountains, which totaled approximately 185 percent of normal, both the East and West Walker rivers were subjected to extensive flooding with threats to dams and levees along the river system. Due to the lack of residential and industrial buildup along the river, however, property damage was minimal. Even so, there was extensive flooding of agricultural lands (NDWR, 2014).
