This project near Thunderbird lodge on Lake Tahoe’s east shore proposes to restore a portion of Marlette Creek to improve stream function, water quality, and fish habitat and provide erosion control and stormwater treatment at directly connected outfalls from SR 28.

Project Goals

  • Capture and treat State Route 28 stormwater runoff prior to entering Marlette Creek by installing treatment at each stormwater outfall.
  • Repair incision and stabilize the bed of S. Fork of Marlette Creek and provide fish passage.
  • Provide fish passage at the SR 28 culvert.
  • Stabilize SR 28 shoulders, road embankments, and dirt parking areas that are directly connected.
  • Alleviate ponding on SR28.
NTCD is partnering with the USFS for this project
