Be a Steward of Stormwater and help keep pollution out of Lake Tahoe! Water from roadside storm drains is often not treated before entering Lake Tahoe or its tributaries. Most of the nutrients and fine sediment particles that cause clarity loss originate from roadways in our local commercial centers and neighborhoods.
At each events, volunteers will:
- Sweep the storm drain free of debris
- Pick up litter
- Install English and Spanish markers onto storm drain grates
- Chalk “SOS,” “No dumping,” etc.
- Learn about the impacts stormwater runoff has on Lake Tahoe water clarity
