Grant #29

Chalk Creek Watershed Management for Water Quality to Minimize Non-Point Source Pollution from Reaching the Truckee River

The project involves the identification of pollution sources, evaluation of options and implementation of physical measures to reduce loading of non-point source pollution to the Truckee River from Chalk Creek and the Chalk Creek Watershed. Chalk Creek had been an ephemeral stream which has become perennial in the lower reaches due to urban growth in the watershed and increased storm-water and irrigation run-off.

TMWA Benefit:

Directly benefits water quality and the watershed of the Truckee River, particularly influent water quality to the Chalk Bluff Plant.
