This project will repair an existing retaining wall along Beowawie Road in Crystal Bay, Nevada. This wall was installed as part of the Crystal Bay Erosion Control Project (1988) and is failing due to extreme runoff during and following the 2017 winter. The failing slope is located within 600 feet of Lake Tahoe, and a complete slope failure would have a negative effect on water quality.
