Lake Tahoe Best Management Practices
LTEC Surface Drains was founded in 2006 to control the unnatural and unmanaged flow of “Dirty Water” into Lake Tahoe caused by residential and commercial development of the surrounding shore lines. LTEC engineers designed unique Surface Drain systems that are exceptionally effective at capturing, filtering and returning clean water to Lake Tahoe.
With over 50,000 feet of LTEC Drains currently installed in the Lake Tahoe Basin, the water clarity has continued to increase every year and the waters are now the clearest they have been in ten years according to UC Davis Scientists who monitor the Lake Tahoe’s clarity levels.
LTEC Surface Drains are approved by the following:
- Tahoe Regional Planning Agency (TRPA)
- Tahoe Resource Conservation District (TRCD)
- Nevada Tahoe Conservation District (NTCD)
- Nevada Resource Conservation Services (NRCS)
