  • 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.

  • The League to Save Lake Tahoe has offered to fund a portion of a study of methods that might finally address a decades-old infestation of aquatic invasive plants in the lagoons of the Tahoe Keys, adjacent to Lake Tahoe.

  • The harvesting season is right around the corner and I wanted to give everyone a brief overview of how harvesting operations will be conducted and what the upcoming projects will be occurring throughout the season.

  • The first two weeks of the harvesting season are completed. Similar to last year, the season started off slow due to the water being deeper and colder, which has stunted the plant growth up to this point. Due to this, we suspended harvesting in June and focused on fragment control. We started harvesting after the July 4th holiday and are now in full operations.

  • Our harvesting season is winding down and with one month left to go, our shutdown process has begun.

    At the beginning of the season, I stated that the Association has only three harvesters, compared to five in years past. During high traffic months, our focus was to ensure the navigation lanes were as clear as possible. For the remainder of the season we will be focusing on docks and slips.
