Watershed protection for the drinking water source of the Chalk Bluff Water Treatment Plant
This project entails a detailed study culminating with project plans and specifications for a project that will redirect surface run-off from the Highland Canal (Chalk Bluff WTP source of supply). The project will incorporate retention basins and other LID features to minimize pollutants from reaching Truckee River. The project addresses a problem crossing jurisdictional boundaries.
When implemented, this project will prevent surface run-off from entering the Highland Canal and will reduce sediment, TDS, hydrocarbon and nutrient loading on the river.
