Draft Environmental Document
Available for 60 Day Public Review

The USDA Forest Service Lake Tahoe Basin Management Unit (LTBMU) is developing a plan to restore Meeks Creek to a more natural condition, while continuing to support sustainable recreation opportunities at Meeks Bay.

The LTBMU and project partners have developed four alternatives that would remove the inoperative marina and artificial lagoon and incorporate recreation amenities such as an improved campground, bicycle and pedestrian paths, parking, and a public access pier.

Today, the project partners released the draft environmental impact statement/environmental impact statement/environmental impact report (Draft EIS/EIS/EIR) for public comment. This Draft EIS/EIS/EIR evaluates the potential environmental impacts of the proposed project, identifies ways to minimize or mitigate potential impacts, and identifies a preferred alternative.

The Draft EIS/EIR/EIS is available for public comment for 60 days from June 10 to August 9, 2022.
