Please visit the TRCD website at: WWW.TAHOERCD.ORG to find out more information about divers working in the Tahoe Keys Offshore Project Area and what they are doing to fight the spread of aquatic invasive species in and around Lake Tahoe.
As aquatic invasive species (AIS) have become an urgent issue in the Keys lagoons, it is also a Lake Tahoe-wide threat to water quality, the environment and the economy. The Tahoe Keys Property Owners Association (TKPOA) has been actively managing invasive plants for decades through an integrative, science-based approach with the goal of gaining control over the infestation and greatly reducing their spread. TKPOA is currently collaborating on the development of an environmental document (EIS/EIR) to find solutions to address the aquatic invasive plant issue.
Collaborative Multi-Stakeholder Process
The collaboration team is composed of representatives from Lahontan Water Board, TKPOA, TRPA, Tahoe Water Suppliers Association, and The League to Save Lake Tahoe. See tahoekeysweeds.org for the collaborative website. Take a virtual tour of the keys here.
