This Saturday Fallon/Churchill County will welcome several thousand visitors for the SYFL Experience. This great event does cause some traffic congestion and back ups in the area of Sheckler and the High School. We ask that if you can avoid traveling through that area to please do so. For AYSO parents attending opening ceremonies please utilize Miners Road and enter the fairgrounds through that gate. We thank you for your cooperation.

On the morning of Friday, July 27th, funeral services will be held for Fallon/Churchill Volunteer Fire Department Captain Charles "Bert" Miller. We ask that you refrain from controlled burns on Friday so his fellow firefighters can honor him and comfort his family. In addition, there will be fire agencies and family and friends from outside the area. A large funeral service is expected, and traffic delays or re-routing of traffic may occur between 8AM and the early afternoon. The areas of North Taylor Street, Williams Avenue from North Taylor Street to Rio Vista Blvd, and Rio Vista Blvd to the Cemetary are expected to experience delays and/or closures. We at the Sheriff's Office thank you for your consideration and patience as our community grieves and show thanks for his service.

The delay will last most of the day and should be completed around 6 pm. If possible please avoid the area and use alternate routes to access the homes along Casey Road. Thank you.

The Churchill County Sheriffs Office would like to wish all the Graduating Seniors the Best of Luck in their future endeavors and congratulate them on all the hard work and dedication they have shown reaching this goal. High School Graduation takes place this evening (05/25/2018 at 7 p.m.) at the High School. Parking is expected to start filling up early especially if the ceremony is moved inside due to inclement weather. If you are planning to go to the event please plan enough time to safely navigate the traffic control points set up for everyone's safety. If you are not going and can avoid the area of Junction South/Fairgrounds/High School we ask that you do this to minimize traffic flow. Have a safe Graduation and Memorial Day Weekend!!!!!

100 years ago today. We remember...

This evening at 7:00PM we dedicated the shade pergola in front of the new Sheriff's Office facility to our Churchill County Search and Rescue. This will serve as a permanent recognition and honorarium for the volunteers of SAR who've been serving our community since 1967. Pictured are current and past members of SAR with Deputy Jason Fenner and Sheriff Ben Trotter. Thank you SAR for all you do! Sheriff Ben Trotter

Update on Water Levels: Lahontan: 276,800 acre feet Ft. Churchill flows: 1,120 cfs Outflows from dam: 993 cfs Tarzyn flows: 256 cfs Things are holding nicely and the reduced flow in the river has taken the pressure off of residents along the river.

The Sheriffs Office just received word that the repairs to the Sink hole on Bottom Road have been completed and the roadway is now open.

****ALERT**** Bottom Road in the area of the 4000 block has been closed after a sink hole was discovered. Traffic in both directions will be turned around, please plan accordingly and use alternate routes. ****ALERT****

Why 95 is now open for normal traffic.

Hwy 95 south of Fallon (in the area of Churchill mile marker 14) is closed in both directions, due to an injury accident. Unknown at this time when it will be open.

Current Water Data: Lahontan: 284,900 acre feet Ft. Churchill: 1,100 cfs Outflows: 1,490 cfs Tarzyn: 560 cfs

Current Water Data: Lahontan: 286,700 acre feet Ft. Churchill flows: 1,270 cfs Flows from dam: 1,490 cfs Tarzyn: 568 cfs The River is expected to continue to flow as it is now until the end of April.

Today the Churchill County Sheriffs Office conducted a K-9 sniff at the Churchill County Middle School as part of our ongoing effort to keep our community safe, and to make sure the students and staff at our schools have a safe environment in which to learn and work. This K-9 sniff was conducted in response to a request received from the Middle School administration. The Churchill County Sheriffs Office conducted a search of several classrooms utilizing our highly trained K-9 and handler. The Sheriffs Office team was accompanied by members of the Churchill County Juvenile Probation Office and Middle School administration. During these searches of the classroom and its contents no students or staff had contact with the K-9 or were searched by the dog or a member of the team. We would like to thank the Churchill County Middle School Administration and Staff as well as the Juvenile Probation Office for their support of our efforts to keep the Schools a safe learning environment for our students.

Current Water Data: Lahontan: 285,900 acre feet Ft. Churchill: 1940 cfs Outflows from dam: 1400 cfs Tarzyn: 593 cfs You'll note the increase in storage at Lahontan. This was expected due to the recent storm and run-off caused by this. We're expecting to continue the drawdown outflows for another week or more and you should see the storage level reduce some. There is another storm rolling in today so expect the drawdown results to be delayed.

The Churchill County Road Department will be temporarily closing Reservoir Road between Indian Lakes and North Crook. The temporary closure is effective immediately due to some concerns with the safety of the bridge crossing Reservoir Road. Updates will follow regarding the length of the closure.

Some good news! Reduction in the River flows has begun. The river should drop by a foot or more in the next day. This is due to the storm this past week being less than expected. We do have a couple storms predicted over the next week so stand by. Hopefully this will relieve some of the concerns along the River.
