FOCUS: Erosion control and restoration projects – under construction, recently completed and long-standing, in Reno, Carson City, and Lake Tahoe. The climate of this semi-arid region currently consists of mostly cold winters and warm-hot summers. Typically most precipitation occurs in the fall and winter, following the short growing season. However, this past winter brought unusually high precipitation, resulting in erosion, sedimentation, slope failures, but also successes.

STOPS INCLUDE:
• A creek restoration project
• Freeway projects
• A multi-use bike path
• An emergency truck ramp
• Water quality improvement projects
Each unique stop along the tour will highlight challenges and solutions, comparing methodologies and costs, and encouraging plenty of interaction among the experts in attendance.
