Charges filed in water fraud case

RENO — A grand jury indicted the Truckee Carson Irrigation District and four of its employees Wednesday on allegations of falsifying records to secure additional water supplies from the U.S. government.

The four are charged with conspiracy to defraud the U.S. Bureau of Reclamation, falsification of records, false claims and false statements. If convicted, they could face 20 years or more in prison.

The employees are alleged to have inflated 2000-2005 data regarding the efficiency of the district’s water deliveries so as to secure additional water credits from the bureau to boost supplies for Nevada farmers and ranchers.
