I would like to update the Tahoe Keys Property Owners Association (TKPOA) on upcoming Aquatic Invasive Species (AIS) Projects that will be taken place over the next several weeks.

As part of the ongoing Environmental Impact Report (EIR) and Environmental Impact Statement (EIS), the Tahoe Regional Planning Agency (TRPA) has contracted several environmental consulting companies to conduct monitoring and sampling within the TKPOA Waterways.

Currently, there are numerous orange buoys that are spread throughout our waterways. Attached to each of these buoys is a monitoring device for continuous data logging. Over the next two weeks (June 17-28), these consultant companies will conduct a fish survey, using minnow traps and electrofishing, a Benthic Macroinvertebrates collection and sampling, and a wetland survey. For your safety, please keep your distance from any of the monitoring sensors and the crews conducting the field work. Any interference with these ongoing projects can severely hinder the overall TKPOA AIS Program.

If you have any questions about the upcoming AIS Program, contact Greg Hoover, Water Quality Manager / AIS Management Coordinator, for information at (530) 542-6444. I can also be reached by email at This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it..
