Public Engagement Approach and Schedule for the Tahoe Keys Control Methods Test Draft Environmental Impact Statement/Review

 

The project lead agencies (Tahoe Regional Planning Agency and the Lahonton Regional Water Quality Control Board) are committed to providing meaningful opportunities for interested citizens and organizations to provide input on the proposed Control Methods Test for managing aquatic weeds in the Tahoe Keys lagoons.

 

Recap of Summer 2020

On July 6, 2020 the Draft Environmental Impact Statement/Review (DEIS/DEIR), which evaluates the potential environmental impacts of the proposed Control Methods Test and project alternatives was released for public review. The public comment period was extended to 60 days to allow adequate time for the public to provide comments and feedback.

During the 60-day public comment period, the lead agencies hosted several online webinars to provide an overview of the proposed project, project alternatives, and the analysis of potential environmental impacts.  Each webinar had dedicated time for public comments and question and answer sessions.

Due to the need to protect public health and safety during the COVID-19 pandemic, all sessions were conducted online. Notice of these public sessions were broadcast widely using email lists and newsletters, as well as advertisement on this website and through social and local media.
