Input sought on boat-ramp hours

Provided to the Tribune

Lake Tahoe Nevada State Park is working to set its winter boat ramp hours for Sand Harbor and Cave Rock launch sites, and is seeking public input.

Starting Nov. 1, the Tahoe Regional Planning Agency will require aquatic invasive species boat inspectors to be present when boat ramps at Lake Tahoe are open. Quagga and zebra mussels are a significant threat to Tahoe’s ecosystem and quality of recreation, and boat inspections will help protect the lake from this problem, the parks division said in a statement.

Boaters can call in or e-mail their comments on Oct. 13 and 14, from 1 to 4 p.m.

Please call (775) 684-2793 or e-mail tahoe@parks.nv.gov and answer the following questions, based on your typical use of the Cave Rock and Sand Harbor boat ramps during the months of October through April.

1. Do you operate a motorized boat at Lake Tahoe?

2. What days of the week do you use your boat at Lake Tahoe?
