Aquatic Invasive Species Program Prevent, Control, or Eradicate Aquatic Invasive Species
This program focuses on removal activities of aquatic invasive species infestations (plants and clams) that currently exist in the Lake Tahoe region and identified by the Lake Tahoe Aquatic Invasive Species Coordination Committee, from 09-13, outside of Emerald Bay. Individual projects may involve the removal of aquatic invasive species from nearshore Lake Tahoe, small lakes, rivers, streams and other habitats within the region. Monitoring of the status and trends of multiple aquatic invasive species infestations and effectiveness monitoring of individual treatment areas are also included in this program, as is oversight and administration of individual projects.
