Committee passes pipeline bill

Mike Pottage

The U.S. Senate Appropriations Committee on Friday approved spending $2.5 million on the Lake Tahoe Export Pipeline replacement project.

Work started earlier this year on the pipeline.

The 30-inch line, now about 30 years old, sends Tahoe’s treated wastewater out of the basin to Alpine County where it is used for pasture irrigation and farming.

The federal money is contained in a VA-HUD bill headed for a vote of the full Senate. The House Appropriations Committee has not yet decided on its version of the bill.
