The Tahoe Resource Conservation District (Tahoe RCD) is leading the effort to measure pollutants in urban runoff at Lake Tahoe to help evaluate the combined effectiveness of pollutant control measures and consistently track and report monitoring findings. This effort, known as the Regional Storm Water Monitoring Program (RSWMP) is a collaborative program supported by regulatory agencies, local government representatives, and scientists in the Lake Tahoe region.
The RSWMP Data Management System (DMS) was created for Tahoe RCD by the Desert Research Institute (DRI) and Geosyntec. The DMS retrieves and analyzes stormwater monitoring data to evaluate effectiveness of regional stormwater management strategies. That monitoring data is automatically retrieved from the DMS and displayed in LT Info. This page can be used to explore and understand the RSWMP monitoring program and select monitoring data.
Lake Tahoe Info tracks monitoring information programs througout the basin. Featured monitoring programs have detailed monitoring data available within the system. The first featured monitoring program is the Regional Stormwater Monitoring Program (RSWMP) but more are planned.
