Runoff project decision tabled another month

Andy Bourelle

It’s waited this long; why not wait another month?

The proposal to move forward with the Stateline Casino Core Area-Wide Stormwater Drainage Project has been pulled from the agenda of today’s meeting of the Tahoe Regional Planning Agency.

The Governing Board of TRPA was to consider approving the $20 million project which would ultimately control the stormwater runoff from the casino core, filtering and treating the water before it ends up in Lake Tahoe.

The idea for the project first came about more than 10 years ago. However, the final proposal is not ready.

“We’ve sent it back to staff. It needs some more work before it goes before the governing board,” said Don Miner, vice chair and Douglas County’s representative on the board.

Miner said the board hopes to be able to consider the project in April.
