City of Reno Settles with Swan Lake Flooding Plaintiffs for $4.5 Million

The City of Reno in an after-hours press release today announced a $4.5 million settlement with plaintiffs affected by Swan Lake flooding in 2017. The city faced dozens of lawsuits alleging negligence for allowing development in flood-prone areas.

Plaintiffs were recently awarded more than $750,000 in damages from the Second Judicial District Court, which also fined the city attorney’s office for failing to admit facts in the case.

The city did not provide further details about the settlement other than to say the $4.5 million is for all claims in all cases.
