Elk Point Marina Bubble Curtain
Partners: Elk Point Marina, The League to Save Lake Tahoe, Tahoe Resource Conservation District, and Tahoe Regional Planning Agency
Funds Granted: $3,000
Aquatic invasive species (AIS) can wreak havoc on local ecosystems. To combat that threat, the Elk Point Marina is working with Tahoe agencies and organizations to install a bubble curtain in their marina to help prevent the entrance of aquatic invasive weeds into their currently weed-free marina.
This same bubble curtain was used at the Tahoe Keys to successfully keep weeds from leaving their community and entering into Lake Tahoe. If successful, this is a new technique that can be used throughout the Tahoe Basin at other marinas once they are free of aquatic invasive weeds.
