Tahoe-Truckee Sanitation Agency

Lake Tahoe and the Truckee River Corridor are located in the Sierra Nevada amid some of the most spectacular mountain scenery and pristine waters of America. The area's dynamic climate is in stark contrast to normally temperate California. This combination of region and weather produces a year-round recreational area with activities ranging from world-class alpine skiing and snowboarding to rock climbing, boating and wind surfing. During the 1960's and 1970's, water-related issues were surfacing nationally. Biologists began to recognize that the water quality of Lake Tahoe and the Truckee River was deteriorating. Spurred on by public interest and the concerns of both California and Nevada governmental agencies, the Porter Cologne Water Quality Control Act (State of California) was promulgated. The Porter Cologne Act mandated that all sewage be exported from the Tahoe Basin and all existing treatment facilities be replaced. The Tahoe-Truckee Sanitation Agency was formed May 1, 1972, to comply with this Act and provide sewage treatment for five collection districts. The five entities involved are the Tahoe City Public Utility District, the North Tahoe Public Utility District, the Squaw Valley County Water District, the Alpine Springs County Water District, and the Truckee Sanitary District. Upon receiving this mandate, the Agency embarked on a program to plan, design, and construct a regional system to transport all sewage from its member districts to a regional plant. The treated wastewater was to be discharged in the Truckee River Corridor in such a manner as to retain the integrity of ground and surface waters, while ensuring the quantity of water downstream was not diminished. The facility began treating wastewater in February 1978.
