“With the delay of more than 10 years due to litigation on CEQA technicalities, we have lost precious time to restore the river and habitat, sending more sediment into Lake Tahoe.” Cyndie Walck

“I look forward to being able to start work on this critical project. This is a watershed scale effort to improve the river and reduce impacts to Lake Tahoe and the relocation of the golf course and restoration of this reach is a key piece.” Cyndie Walck
