Stormwater Management Program Reduce Stormwater Pollution From: Roads and Highways, Forest Roads, Public and Private Parcels
KGID maintains 22 miles of roadway within the Lake Tahoe Basin. The purchase of a new high efficiency street sweeper will enhance KGID’s ability to maintain its roadway system, which will ultimately help Douglas County reduce the flow of fine sediment to the lake and meet its required TMDL mandate. The County has registered KGID's road network within the Stormwater Tools and will receive TMDL credit for road operations, as long as the road score is at 3.0 or above. KGID will enter into a contract with Douglas County to sweep the roads according to an approved sweeping schedule.
