West Lake Tahoe Regional Water Treatment Plant

The Tahoe City Public Utility District (TCPUD) is undertaking the construction of a permanent, year round drinking water treatment plant to replace the temporary seasonal treatment plant located at Chambers Landing.  The new water treatment plant will provide a reliable, drought-resistant, and safe drinking water source to the TCPUD’s McKinney-Quail Water Service area and, potentially, other water systems in the West Lake Tahoe region.

In October of 2015, the TCPUD Board of Directors completed the California Environmental Quality Act (CEQA) review process for the project, adopting a Mitigated Negative Declaration and Mitigation Monitoring & Reporting Program and approving the project. 

Final design of the project has been delayed pending strategic water system acquisitions in the West Lake Tahoe region.  Pending final design and permitting, TCPUD is targeting 2020 for project construction.
