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.

Update – January 11, 2016- The project environmental review has been completed.  The TCPUD’s Board of Directors adopted a Mitigated Negative Declaration and Mitigation Monitoring & Reporting Program and approved the project on October 7, 2015.  More information may be found on the Environmental Review Page.

The TCPUD will now begin final design and permitting of the project with the goal of beginning construction in 2017.
