The Lake Tahoe Watershed Sustainability Measures Project was initiatied in 2006 by a broad consortium of commuity interests, including representatives of business, social services, education health care, public safety, public services and government. The objective of the project was to determine and implement a set of measures of sustainability that could be monitored and analyzed to help shape public and private sector policy. The process included public meetings, workshops etc. Due to the nature of the Tahoe Basin (5 counties, 1 city, 2 states) there was little to no Basin specific data available prior to this project. This project has completed its first report and it is anticipated that it will be housed within the forming Prosperity Center in order for it to be updated on a regular basis.
