TRPA Best in Basin Award for NTCD!
The Rosewood Creek Restoration Project received a TRPA Best in Basin award at their September 28, 2016 Board meeting!
From 2012-2015, the Nevada Tahoe Conservation District implemented a stream restoration on a half mile reach of Rosewood Creek, a tributary to Third Creek in Incline Village. Over 2,100 feet of channel and floodplain were restored in a reach of stream that had the potential to deliver roughly 10,000 cubic yards of sediment to Lake Tahoe in the next 20 years if the status quo persisted. Unique about the Rosewood Creek Area A Restoration is that it occurred mostly on private land. The design team knew future access to the corridor would be limited and therefore designed the system to be resilient to major events.
