Truckee River Watershed AIS Prevention and Control

Aquatic Invasive Species (AIS) Prevention – The Truckee River Fund funding has been instrumental in achieving enormous progress toward regional AIS prevention in the Truckee River watershed. While a number of milestones have been reached, continued collaboration and implementation is still needed to achieve a sustainable and functional regional prevention program. A synchronized and coordinated administrative structure for regional AIS prevention requires an organized effort and will streamline implementation, create program efficiencies and enhance boater convenience. The project funds prevention (boat inspections) and AIS control (primarily Eurasian watermilfoil removal between Lake Tahoe and River Ranch).

TMWA Benefit:

This project improves water quality through aquatic invasive plant removal along the Truckee River and is part of a control strategy which TMWA supports.
