Title:
Upper Truckee River Restoration Project Middle Reaches 3 and 4 EA/IS/IEC
Site:
Summary:
The City of South Lake Tahoe with grant funding from the California Tahoe Conservancy and Reclamation propose to restore a portion of the Upper Truckee River channel and associated riparian and stream environment zone habitat. This is the Upper Truckee River corridor directly east of the Lake Tahoe Airport and grazing land directly north of the airport. The objectives of the project are to improve natural function of the channel, increase overbank flow, and deposit sediment into the floodplain more frequently. Controlling the flow and gradient, protecting the stream banks and designing to allow the river to overtop its banks during peak periods will have many benefits.
