Truckee Donner PUD does not generate electric power locally and relies on NV Energy for transmission services. Over the last two months, there has been a decline in NV Energy transmission reliability resulting in numerous intermittent and longer-term electric outages; primarily in Tahoe Donner and Donner Lake but also impacting Glenshire and other areas. TDPUD has been seeking a solution from NV Energy. Power outages do happen and we all need to be prepared. If you have questions about the causes of your power outages, call TDPUD at 530-587-3896 during regular business hours. For current outage information, visit our outage management page.

Water Department

Water service is complex in a mountain environment.  Our water supply is the Martis Valley in the southeast portion of our service territory.  Our customer base is spread over forty-four square miles and covers an elevation change from 5,800 feet to 7,350 feet.  We have 11 wells, 200 miles of pipeline, 36 storage tanks and 26 pump stations.  This complex system is expensive to operate, maintain, repair and replace.  Costs of energy, materials and labor are increasing.  Looking into the future, we can predict that water rates will increase gradually in the coming years.  We need to manage projects and cash very carefully and keep our customers informed.
