Abstract The Humboldt River Water Conservation Project (proposed project) includes elements that are either part of the Bureau of Reclamation (Reclamation) Humboldt Project (Rye Patch Dam) or are affected by water passing though the Humboldt Project (Pitt and Rogers Dams and Rogers Canal). The Humboldt Project is located in northwestern Nevada on the Humboldt River. Rye Patch Dam and Reservoir is on the Humboldt River about 22 miles upstream from Lovelock, the county seat of Pershing County. The Humboldt Project provides for storage at Rye Patch Dam, acquisition of lands and water rights upstream in the Battle Mountain area for supplementing the water supply for project lands, and utilization of the Pitt-Taylor Reservoirs. The purpose of the project is to provide seasonal and long-term regulation of the Humboldt River and to increase the amount of water available for irrigation of agricultural lands in the Lovelock area. Currently there are 37,506 irrigable acres within the Water District, approximately 32,000 acres of which are irrigated on an annual basis.
