Lake Tahoe's Regional Approach to Wastewater Infrastructure Planning
The Lake Tahoe Basin Wastewater Infrastructure Partnership (Partnership) involves the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers and eight wastewater agencies that maintain wastewater collection systems in the Basin. The Partnership has undertaken a number of initiatives to reduce the risk of sewer leaks or overflows that could degrade the water quality of Lake Tahoe. These initiatives include the development of inspection and condition assessment standards, a decision algorithm for improvement project identification, a project prioritization process, and a project database to manage information related to improvement projects. This paper discusses the development and implementation of these tools by the Basin's wastewater agencies. The initiatives are helping the agencies work together to maintain Lake Tahoe's legendary water quality.
