Public comment sought on Upper Truckee River work

Gregory Crofton

Environmental restoration work for the Upper Truckee River, the largest tributary to Lake Tahoe, will be discussed Tuesday at a public workshop.

Analysis of potential environmental impacts of restoration work proposed for river south of Elks Club Drive is being funded by the Tahoe Resource Conservation District and the U.S. Bureau of Reclamation.

The work, called an environmental assessment and required by law, is nearing completion. Planners want input from the public because some of the restoration projects may limit use of the river corridor.

The meeting will be Tuesday at 1:30 p.m. in the U.S. Forest Service Supervisor’s Office building at 35 College Drive.
