A large portion of Warm Springs Valley, located about 20 miles northeast of Reno, Washoe County Nevada, is being considered for development as an industrial test complex by North American Rockwell Corporation. The water supply required to support this endeavor can be most economically obtained by exploiting the ground-water resources in the unconsolidated alluvial fill in Warm Springs Valley. This report is the result of a water resources investigation of Warm Springs Valley, conducted for the purposes of evaluating the potential water supply and formulating criteria for location and design of future water wells.
