Public comment needed on winter boat ramp hours for Sand Harbor and Cave Rock

sandharbor Public comment needed on winter boat ramp hours for Sand Harbor and Cave RockINCLINE VILLAGE / STATELINE, Nev. — Lake Tahoe Nevada State Park is requesting public comment for open boat ramp operating hours and days of the week, at both the Sand Harbor and Cave Rock launch facilities.

Effective November 1, 2008, the Tahoe Regional Planning Agency is requiring that aquatic invasive species boat inspectors be present when boat ramps at Lake Tahoe are open. Quagga and Zebra mussels are a significant threat to Tahoe’s ecosystem and quality of recreation. Boat inspections will help protect the lake from this problem.

The park is holding a call-in and email period Monday and Tuesday, October 13 and 14 from 1 p.m. to 4 p.m.

Please call 775-684-2793 or email tahoe@parks.nv.gov and answer the following questions regarding comments for operating the Sand Harbor and Cave Rock boat launches between October 1, 2008 through April 30, 2009:

  1. Do you operate a motorized boat at Lake Tahoe?
  2. What days of the week do you use your boat at Lake Tahoe?
  3. What hours of the day do you use your boat at Lake Tahoe?

Lake Tahoe Nevada State Park appreciates the public’s involvement in helping set boat ramp operating hours and your understanding with the need to protect Lake Tahoe from aquatic invasive species.
