Definition Of:

FALLON NATIONAL WILDLIFE REFUGE (NWR) (Nevada)

Environmental Engineering Dictionary
One of the nine National Wildlife Refuges (NWR) located in the State of Nevada, the Fallon NWR was established in 1931 and encompasses approximately 17,900 acres (28 square miles) where the Carson River terminates in the Carson Sink and is situated within the northwest portion of the Stillwater Wildlife Management Area near the town of Fallon in Churchill County, Nevada. Due to typically limited and uncertain flows of the Carson River at its terminus, generally not enough water enters this refuge to maintain it as a viable wetland area. The Fallon NWR is currently managed by the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service (USFWS) along with the Stillwater National Wildlife Refuge and is included as part of the Stillwater Wildlife Management Area. Also see National Wildlife Refuge (NWR) System and National Wildlife Refuges (NWR) (Nevada).
