The County began the implementation of its portion of the Phase 1 components during the 2010 water year (October 1, 2009 through September 30, 2010). Phase 1 activities were limited by available funding to a set of select monitoring activities in the Bear, Squaw and Martis Creek watersheds. The activities performed during the first year included:
This Joint Annual Monitoring Report describes the monitoring activities performed by Placer County and the Town of Truckee during WY 2011 and presents their results. Data collection activities during this second year of the TRWQMP’s implementation included:
Community level (stormwater runoff) discrete water quality sampling within the Truckee Town Corridor and the Martis Creek sub-watersheds,
Tributary level discrete water quality sampling within the Martis Creek watershed, and
Continuous discharge monitoring on Martis Creek.
No rapid assessments or bioassessments were performed during WY 2011.
This assessment and management plan provides an updated assessment of nonpoint source pollution concerns for the Pyramid Lake Paiute Tribe. The 2011 update builds upon the research and results compiled for the 1994 Plan. In addition, the revision will reevaluate the concerns and provide an updated ranking of priority NPS issues. For each of these NPS concerns, possible treatment options are suggested. The updated plan will serve as a tool in the Tribe’s efforts to protect water quality and associated designated beneficial uses on reservation waters.
