Spotlight on Upper Truckee River Restoration Scheme

The U.S. Forest Service and California Tahoe Conservancy will host a field trip for any members of the public interested in their multiple-year project, the Upper Truckee River Reach 5 Restoration Project in South Lake Tahoe.

On Wednesday, September 28 at 5:30 p.m., people are invited to head out there to see the final stage, a project over a decade in the works, they stated in its announcement.

The goal of the project is to replace the existing stream channel with a new channel that is more stable and connected to the adjacent floodplain, one that will provide a better aquatic habitat, support a healthier meadow ecosystem, and reduce the amount of fine sediment that reaches Lake Tahoe.

The existing channel became incised as a result of urban development, grazing, road building, airport construction, logging and gravel mining.

Restoration activities include the construction of approximately 7,340 feet of new river channel to replace the existing incised and eroding channel, relocation of buried utility lines where they will cross the new channel, and grading and revegetating approximately 5.6 acres of floodplain near the transition to the downstream reach.

The project will result in 120 acres of restored and reactivated floodplain.
