Addendum 1

Fill out this 1 minute survey about BMP services


In the past, grant funding enabled NTCD to assist property owners retrofit their parcels and do their part to protect Lake Tahoe’s rare qualities. However, reduction in the funding available is causing NTCD to look for other sources to continue providing BMP Retrofit services. Installing and maintaining BMPs is a key action to keep pollutants out of Lake Tahoe. To continue to assist residential property owners with the same level of service, we are requesting donations to offset a portion of the BMP Retrofit Program costs.

 

We are collecting information on resident's willingness to pay for BMP services. Please fill out the survey HERE
