Background for the EIP
Tahoe Science Consortium
Conserving Lake Tahoe for future generations requires the collaboration and dedication of more than 50 organizations. The EIP established a culture of cooperation and mutual support essential to streamlining implementation of environmental restoration initiatives. While progress over the last 10 years has been significant, recent science shows more must be done to stop environmental degradation and to reach ecosystem restoration goals.
