Truckee Regional Aquatic Invasive Species Prevention Program

Truckee watershed stakeholders saw the need to initiate the development of a regional approach to stop the spread of aquatic invasive species such as the quagga mussel, New Zealand mudsnail and Eurasian watermilfoil. Stopping the spread of AIS is being accomplished through a collaborative process that includes watercraft inspections, education & outreach and early detection monitoring.  The Truckee Regional Aquatic Invasive Species Prevention Program (TRAISPP) is supported by recreational users, environmental groups, local, state and federal government agencies.

 Accomplishments:

Grant funds from the Truckee River Fund and the US Bureau of Reclamation will support TRAISPP through December, 2014.  We will continue to develop and expand the invasive species prevention program through watercraft inspection implementation, education and outreach, and early detection monitoring.
