Lake Tahoe Shorezone Ordinance Amendments Draft Environmental Impact Statement (TRPA DEIS)
Document Type
EIR - Draft EIR

Document Description
Currently, the TRPA Code prohibits the placement of new piers, boat ramps, mooring buoys, or floating docks or platforms in areas identified on the TRPA Prime Fish Habitat Map as "Feeding and/or Escape Cover Habitat" and "Spawning Habitat". The Code also prohibits these structures within 200 feet of certain stream and river inlets. Chapter 54 of the fish study assessing construction and use impacts on fish habitat and spawning areas has been completed. Pursuant to Code Subsection 54.3.B, the scope of this document is to reconsider the fish habitat and spawning stream location standards, as they pertain to new and existing piers, mooring buoys, boat ramps, floating docks or platforms, and other related Shorezone structures. The purpose of this Shorezone DEIS is to provide an analysis of the existing situation and future trends in the Shorezone of Lake Tahoe, and to evaluate five build-out alternatives for future development regulations. The primary focus of this analysis is on TRPA's ability to attain and maintain environmental goals under each of the alternative scenarios.
