Lake Tahoe Keys, CA (2002)

1,200 linear feet of double-ply 4' high AquaDams® were installed in three
different locations to prevent erosion during wetland restoration. Due to
anticipated high water flows in the adjacent Upper Truckee River, preventing
eroded sediment from entering Lake Tahoe was a priority.
The Lake Tahoe water authority is the most restrictive in the nation when it comes to
water quality issues. This sign displays the government representatives associated with
this project. Water quality was the top priority in the creation of these wetlands during
the restoration process.
The first AquaDam® at location #1 is laid out and unrolled. Fill hoses are inserted
into the fill tubes and filling begins. The idea is to isolate anticipated high water
flows in the Upper Truckee River from the newly-created adjacent wetlands. Considerable
expense has gone into grading and seeding the reclaimed areas.
