LTNSP seeks comments on winter boat ramp hours
Nevada Appeal Outdoors Editor
The Lake Tahoe Nevada State Park (LTNSP) is requesting public comment for open boat ramp operating hours, and days of the week, at both the Sand Harbor and Cave Rock launch facilities.
Effective Nov. 1st of 2008, the Tahoe Regional Planning Agency (TRPA) is requiring that aquatic invasive species (AIS) boat inspectors be present when boat ramps at Lake Tahoe are open.
Quagga and Zebra Mussels, and other AIS, are a significant threat to Tahoe’s ecosystem and quality of recreation. Boat inspections will help protect the lake from this problem.
The LTNSP is holding a call-in and E-mail period on Monday, Oct. 13 and Tuesday, Oct. 14, from 1 p.m. to 4 p.m..
You can call (775) 684-2793 or you can E-mail at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Please limit your responses to the following:
At the Sand Harbor and Cave Rock boat launches, between October 1st and April 30th:
1. Do you operate a motorized boat at Lake Tahoe?
2. What days of the week do you use your boat at Lake Tahoe?
3. What hours of the day do you use your boat at Lake Tahoe?
Lake Tahoe Nevada State Park appreciates the public’s involvement in helping us to set boat ramp operating hours and your understanding with the need to protect Lake Tahoe from aquatic invasive species.
