League to contribute portion of funds to study solutions to aquatic invasive weeds at the Tahoe Keys

The League to Save Lake Tahoe has offered to fund a portion of a study of methods that might finally address a decades-old infestation of aquatic invasive plants in the lagoons of the Tahoe Keys, adjacent to Lake Tahoe.

Aquatic invasive plants in the lagoons of the Tahoe Keys are growing out of control and are spreading to the west, east and north shores of Lake Tahoe. Unchecked, they threaten to destroy Lake Tahoe's ecology, pristine water quality and famous clarity. The League has offered to support a scientific test, which would be conducted in a small section of the Keys lagoons --- those furthest from the Lake and to be separated by an impermeable barrier --- to determine whether a combination of mechanical and chemical treatments can bring the infestation under control before more of the plants spread to the Lake.

Rains reduce Tahoe's clarity, monitoring help needed
KOLO News 8 covers Pipe Keepers_ water clarity

Reno's KOLO 8 News visited us in Tahoe to learn more about Pipe Keepers, the League's citizen science program to address the threat of stormwater pollution to Lake Tahoe's clarity. 
With this big winter, we are redoubling our efforts to recruit more Pipe Keepers to help us collect samples during spring runoff.

Pipe Keepers is a citizen science program to address the threat of stormwater pollution entering Lake Tahoe. Runoff from rain storms and snowmelt is the largest source of pollution that degrades Lake clarity. League staff will train you to survey local neighborhoods and collect stormwater samples during rain and snowmelt events.
