safety

  • Dear Tahoe Keys Property Owners Association member,

    Since our letter last week notifying you of the algae bloom detected in the west channel on August 15, 2017, both TKPOA and the Lahontan Regional Water Quality Control Board (LRWQCB) have conducted testing and have begun a plan of action to address the issue.

  • The Water Quality Committee and the Water Quality Staff have been proactive in the planning and preparation of our waterways since last year’s Harmful Algae Bloom (HAB).  Water quality sampling and monitoring has been ongoing for the duration of the season.  Unfortunately, the TKPOA is at the infancy stages of experiencing another algae bloom for this season in the West Channel, East Channel and Lake Tallac.  

  • The Water Quality Committee and the Water Quality (WQ) Staff have been proactive in the planning and preparation of our waterways since our 2017 Harmful Algae Bloom (HAB). This season, water quality sampling and monitoring has been ongoing since April. Unfortunately, the TKPOA is at the infancy stages of experiencing another algae bloom for this season in the West Channel, East Channel and Lake Tallac.  

  • Now that winter has arrived and the Tahoe Keys lagoons and waterways are covered with ice and snow, it is important to think about ice safety. TKPOA Security and South Lake Tahoe Fire and Rescue recommend you never venture out on our frozen lagoons and waterways, as they are extremely unsafe. Please keep in mind:
