Restoring Lake Tahoe

Feinstein plan will combat invasive species, improve water clarity, reduce wildfire threat and restore environment.

Lake Tahoe is a national treasure. Her alpine beauty has drawn and inspired people for centuries, from poets and artists like John Muir and Mark Twain to countless millions of people the world over.

But the “Jewel of the Sierra” is in trouble, threatened by invasive species, pollution and drought. An extension of the Lake Tahoe Restoration Act will authorize funds to combat invasive species, improve water clarity, reduce the threat of catastrophic wildfire, and restore the environment.
