2013 Field Season Ends

Posted on

Beginning November 1, we are unable to provide assistance to new BMP and Conservation Landscaping Service Requests. However, as time permits, we will continue to assist homeowners and contractors with questions regarding BMP installation and final inspections on Tahoe RCD BMP plans. If you need assistance with an active or existing BMP evaluation please use the ‘request our service’ form at TahoeRCD.org  to place yourself on our service request list. No internet access? Please leave your property address, mailing address, email address, your name and phone number. We will contact you within 7 days. Thank you for your patience. 

The District’s capacity to provide this cost free BMP incentive program is limited; however, the TRPA has released a new do-it-yourself BMP design tool to enable you to design your own residential retrofit BMPs. Please visit TahoeBMP.org to learn how you can get started. There you will also find the list of contractors who are certified by the TRPA to perform BMP Retrofit Evaluations

If you have immediate questions about TRPA’s BMP retrofit program, please contact the TRPA BMP hotline: (775) 589-5202 or online at TahoeBMP.org.

All Tahoe RCD services are grant funded and are subject to change.

Thank you and have a good day.
