Tahoe RCD to Hold Community Meeting for Input on Stormwater Resources Plan

Posted on

Public Information Meeting

The Tahoe RCD, along with agency partners, is developing a Stormwater Resource Plan (SRP). The SRP is required by the California State Water Resources Control Board to establish eligibility for bond funding for stormwater quality improvement projects. It quantifies the multiple benefits of planned stormwater projects and prioritizes them for funding.

Tahoe RCD is hosting two public meetings to introduce the concept of an SRP, present highlights of the draft SRP, and allow an opportunity for public participation.

 

The meetings will be held at the following times and locations:

December 6th, 2017 at 4 pm – City of South Lake Tahoe Council Chamber

December 7th, 2017 at 9 am – Town of Truckee East Wing Conference Room
