Hybrid BMP Project


This project constructed eight LID infiltration features in the Washoe County Right-of-Way during the Fall of 2011. The rain gardens were integrated into an existing landscaping and stormwater improvement project and are designed to hydraulically isolate themselves when full.


Preliminary monitoring results are promising with nearly 80% of all water in the catchment area being treated through infiltration. Studies have shown infiltration to be the most promising method in the treatment of fine sediment and integrating off-line rain gardens throughout the Tahoe Basin could result in a significant reduction of fine sediment delivery to Lake Tahoe and surrounding water bodies.

 

Hybrid BMP Project Awarded TRPA Best in Basin

NTCD in collaboration with Washoe County and Gradex Construction will be awarded the Best in Basin for Erosion Control for the Hybrid BMP Project located in Incline Village. The Hybrid BMP project sucessfully installed 8 LID features in the Washoe County Right of Way, including Tahoe's first public rain gardens. NTCD designed the project in house with the help of Washoe County and Gradex Construction installed the features. Preliminary monitoring results are promising for the removal of fine sediment and public opinion on the LID features is positive. The award will be presented at the TRPA Governing Board Meeting on March 27th, 2013 at 9:30 AM.
