Document Description
The District is proposing to implement an adaptive management plan (AMP) to protect its existing force and gravity sewer mains along with its Bellevue Pump Station facility in South Lake Tahoe. During the record-snowmelt year of 2011, a portion of the Trout Creek channel near the Bellevue Pump Station completely filled with sand and small gravel, causing the stream to overflow northward approximately 70 feet onto the District's easement. The intent of the AMP is to protect the sewer infrastructure from flooding and reduce the risk of a sewer spill. The AMP consists of measures designed both to prevent permanent establishment of Trout Creek over the sewer lines and adjacent to the pump station facility and to encourage flows to establish new paths to the south, away from the District's facilities.
