Project: Collaborative Aquatic Invasive Species Program Planning

Description: The grantee will complete CEQA, NEPA, and Tahoe Regional Planning Agency environmental review, permitting process, and planning for the control of aquatic invasive plants and warm water fish. New techniques will be evaluated for controlling warm water fish, such as electroshocking and controlling aquatic invasive plants including ultraviolet light technology and site-specific dredging. Testing will also be done using new techniques to target Curlyleaf pondweed reproductive buds, including the use of acetic acid or hot water combined with bottom barriers. These efforts will result in improvement to water quality, native fish habitat and recreational opportunities for swimming and boating.
