For the last five years the League to Save Lake Tahoe, known for its slogan "Keep Tahoe Blue," has been relying on citizen science to monitor drainage sites and collect water samples around the lake.
"The goal of the program is to be monitoring as many of these (storm water drainages) as possible," said League to Save Lake Tahoe Natural Resources Manager Zack Bradford.
