Urban Implementing Partners have acheived greater than FSP targets required by permits and agreements.

The estimated amount of fine sediment prevented from entering Tahoe Basin urban stormwater, based on the guidelines laid out in the Lake Clarity Crediting Program Handbook. Fine sediment load is quantified in terms of the number of sediment particles with diameter of less than 16 micrometers. Reduction of fine sediment load benefits Lake Tahoe's clarity.

By:

Urban Implementing Partners have acheived greater than total nitrogen targets required by permits and agreements.

The estimated amount of nitrogen prevented from entering Tahoe Basin urban stormwater, based on the guidelines laid out in the Lake Clarity Crediting Program Handbook. The nitrogen load reduction is defined as the number of kilograms of nitrogen prevented from entering the lake. Reduction in nitrogen reduces the growth of algae and improves Lake Tahoe clarity.

By:

Urban Implementing Partners have acheived greater than total phosphorus targets required by permits and agreements.

The estimated amount of phosphorus prevented from entering Tahoe Basin urban stormwater, based on the guidelines laid out in the Lake Clarity Crediting Program Handbook. Phosphorus load reduction is defined as the number of kilograms of phosphorus removed. Reduction in phosphorus reduces the growth of algae and improves Lake Tahoe clarity.

By:

The annual number of developed parcels in the Tahoe Region with best management practices (BMPs) installed that emphasize removal of fine sediment particles and nutrients.

Data displayed currently includes improvements accomplished by TMDL Urban Implementing Partners. TMDL Management Agencies are working on update to display only accomplishments completed on non-urban roads.

The amount of forestland roads that are retrofitted or obliterated to reduce stormwater pollution through capital improvements. This PM is reported in three categories of treatment priority based on water quality risk. Treating high-priority roads reduces stormwater pollution and cost-effectively improves the clarity of Lake Tahoe.
