Aquatic Invasive Bottom Barrier Challenge
Partners: Tahoe Resource Conservation District, Tahoe Water Suppliers Association
Total Project Cost: $52,500
Tahoe Fund Goal: $26,250
Aquatic invasive plants are impacting water quality around the shoreline of Lake Tahoe. Through a well-coordinated program, the Tahoe Resource Conservation District has been able to remove aquatic invasive weeds with the use of bottom barriers and diver-assisted hand pulling.
The Tahoe Water Suppliers Association has issued a matching challenge to purchase the remaining 175 barriers that would bring the inventory to the full 5 acres.
Thanks to your support and the support of the Tahoe Truckee Community Foundation’s Queen of Hearts and Tahoe Blue Vodka, we met our campaign goal.
