TRI General Improvement District provides potable water, reclaimed water, and wastewater services exclusively to commercial and industrial customers located within the Tahoe Reno Industrial (TRI) Center. TRI Center covers over 100,000 acres in Northern Nevada, with 15,000 acres currently developed.
TRI-GID was created in 2000 by the Storey County Board of County Commissioners in accordance with the provisions of NRS 318. The District is operated in close coordination with the Tahoe Reno Industrial Master Developer, Stakeholders within the Industrial Center, and Stakeholders within the neighboring communities.
At TRI-GID we understand the value of local government in utility management, but we also understand the inherent challenges of dealing with big government. The creation of the GID under NRS 318 provides for some of the most valuable components of effective governance: transparency, stakeholder engagement, and oversight by elected officials. However, TRI-GID is also mindful to avoid the creation of governmental bureacracy wherever possible. Our goal is to maintain a balanced, nimble, dynamic organization that can respond efficiently to meet the current and future needs of our amazing and diverse customers.
