Goal:
Provide Biological Guidance for Sediment TMDL: Define deposited sediment guidelines for monitoring, protecting, and improving the biological health of the Middle Truckee River.
Objectives:
Describe patch-scale distribution of fine + sand (FS) deposits along the river at representative reaches below tributary stream confluences
Collect data to measure biotic responses and limiting effects of sediment at the patch-scale for both cover and volume of FS
Compare biological health to other large rivers of eastern Sierra that are less developed than MTR

Pyramid Lake Paiute Tribe Nonpoint Source Assessment and Management Plan 2011 (public review draft)

Summary: 
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. **** This edition is a public review draft.
