    Tahoe Keys Boat Back-up Station

    This summer the Tahoe Keys will have boat backup stations to reduce the transport of weeds by boats. Look for buoys with signs in the channel where, if timing and boat traffic permit, you should:
    • Stop your vessel
    • Reverse your prop
    • Back your vessel up 10 feet
    That way weeds don't make their way out into Lake Tahoe on your propeller to propagate and spread.
