Lake Tahoe Basin Management Unit
Summary: Located in the Sierra Nevada mountains, Lake Tahoe straddles the California-Nevada state line. The lake occupies about one-third of the basin in which it resides. There are three ways that the Forest Service manages watersheds at Lake Tahoe: planning, restoration, and monitoring. The best way to avoid adverse impacts to watersheds is through careful planning. Areas that have been previously disturbed are inventoried and scheduled for restoration. Monitoring is a continuous effort that provides feedback to land managers about the success of project planning, implementation, maintenance, and effectiveness.

Lake Tahoe Dam
Summary: Lake Tahoe Dam is a reinforced concrete slab and buttress dam, with embankment wings, which encloses seventeen 4- by 5-foot sluice gates, surmounted by a wooden superstructure for sheltering the gate controls. This type of waterway is known as a concrete sluiceway regulator and is considered to be an outlet works. There is no spillway at Lake Tahoe Dam. Lake Tahoe is a natural lake that has been raised by the dam, which controls the top 6 feet of the reservoir, to provide 732,000 acre-feet of active conservation between rim elevation 6223.0 and elevation 6229.1. The primary purposes of the reservoir are for irrigation and recreation. The concrete dam is tied into the abutments by embankment fill material on each end.

Northern Sierra Air Quality Management District
Summary: The Northern Sierra Air Management District was formed in 1986 by the merging of the Air Pollution Control Districts of Nevada, Plumas and Sierra Counties. The District is required by state law to achieve and maintain the federal and state Ambient Air Quality Standards, which are air quality standards set at levels that will protect the public health. The District is composed of three primary entities, each with a specific purpose: District staff, Governing Board of Directors, and Hearing Board.

Tahoe National Forest
Summary: The Tahoe National Forest is one of 18 national forests in the Pacific Southwest Region of the US Department of Agriculture-Forest Service. The eighteen national forests in California cover only 20% of the land in the State but produce almost half the State's runoff water. Because so much of California's water comes from the national forests, the health of our forest ecosystems and watersheds is critical. Many of California's national forests were created specifically to safeguard and preserve water supplies.
