    Boating Restrictions

    May 9th, 2022 to Latest Mid-July 2022

     

    On May 18th, 2022 pursuant to California Civil Code Section 4360 (d), the Board of Directors adopted by Board Motion the following Emergency Rule to restrict boating activity of any kind in the following West Lagoon and Lake Tallac areas identified as Treatment Areas A, B, and C from May 9th, 2022 to as late as mid-July 2022.

     

    During this time, the following rules apply:

    1. No boat access entering or exiting the Treatment Areas A, B and C
    2. No water activities inside Treatment Areas A, B and C. Water Activities include but are not limited to swimmers, pets, boats, sailboats, personal watercrafts, kayaks, canoes or stand-up paddleboards, etc. The herbicide concentrations to treat the weeds will be at levels safe to humans, pets and fish and wildlife, but avoidance is necessary to protect the validity of the CMT.
    3. No outside visitor access into Treatment Areas A, B and C. If you observe someone violating these rules, please contact TKPOA’s Security Staff. “If you see something, say something”.
    4. Boats and other watercraft docked prior to May 9th, 2022 may remain moored, but cannot be operated, from May 9 to as late as mid-July 2022.

     

    This Emergency Rule is required due to the Tahoe Keys West Lagoon/Lake Tallac Control Methods Test (CMT) taking place, and the installation of turbidity curtains and barriers in these treatment areas. The CMT taking place during this time period will cost the TKPOA up to $3.0 million dollars, and any interference with these tests sites by homeowner or outsider swimmers, pets, boats, sailboats, personal water-crafts, kayaks, canoes or stand-up paddle boards and similar watercraft could compromise the entire CMT and result in significant financial impact to TKPOA plus years of delays to solving the weeds problem.

     

    Pursuant to California Civil Code Section 4360 (d) the Board of Directors has authority to enact an Emergency Rule, without notice, if the Board determines that there is an imminent risk of substantial economic loss to the Association. This Emergency Rule will remain in effect from May 9th, 2022 through ending July 18th, 2022, unless rescinded by the Board. The Board of Directors by a Board Motion can rescind this Emergency Rule once the CMT test has been completed in these three treatment Areas (Areas A, B and C).

     

    Violation of this rule by a TKPOA Property Owner, their guests or slip renters can result in a loss of TKPOA Membership Privileges, and fines as high as $10,000.
