This report and associated digital Stream Load Reduction Tool (SLRTv1) calculation templates are the final products for two complementary research efforts funded by the USDA Forest Service Pacific Southwest Research Station using funds from SNPLMA research grants. The combined research goals were to obtain and leverage SEZ specific data to develop a methodology that estimates the average annual pollutant load reduction associated with SEZ restoration efforts. SEZ restoration efforts that include functional geomorphic improvements have, and continue to be, conducted in the Tahoe Basin with a common goal and assumption that they provide a long-term downstream water quality benefit.
