Nevada State Cloud Seeding Program

The Nevada State Cloud Seeding Program is currently conducted in the Lake Tahoe Basin, the Spring Mountains, Ruby Mountains, and Santa Rosa Mountains. The current (2018-2019) program was funded under the 2017 Nevada State Legislature’s Assembly Bill Number 518, section 68, which passed on May 30, 2017. That funding ($680k) allowed DRI scientists to restart the Nevada State Cloud Seeding Program, and allowed DRI to invest in ground-based cloud seeding infrastructure and equipment needed to expand cloud seeding research and operations in both Southern and Eastern Nevada.
