Project Description

This project will continue a long-term monitoring effort on Rosewood Creek which is a major tributary to Third Creek. Monitoring data will help support restoration designs of the middle reach of Rosewood Creek and post-construction data will provide understanding of how stream restoration projects can reduce the delivery of nutrients and suspended sediments to Lake Tahoe. This project will also supplement previous monitoring on the lower reach restoration project in an effort to identify the efficiency of this project reducing suspended sediment loads. In addition, this data may be used for future calibrations of the CONCEPTS model which was developed as part of the Tahoe Total Maximum Daily Load (TMDL).
