Document Description
Tahoe Resource Conservation District (Tahoe RCD), on behalf of the Tahoe Aquatic Invasive Species Coordination Committee (AISCC), and in coordination with the TRPA, is proposing to conduct aquatic plant control and management throughout suitable habitat areas in Lake Tahoe, tributaries, and marshes in California and Nevada, the Upper Truckee River, and the Truckee River between the dam at Lake Tahoe to River Ranch at Alpine Meadows Road. The project area does not include the channels and lagoons of the Tahoe Keys, as a separate analysis of treatment methods is occurring due to the significant differences in scale and complexity. The Project intends to continue aquatic invasive plant control efforts in locations where previous efforts have been successful, expand control efforts to include known infestation areas, expand available methods/techniques, and to allow for rapid response to detections of new aquatic invasive plant (AIP) infestations.
