Future of Donner Lake boat ramp access subject of survey

Special to the Sun

TRUCKEE, Calif. — The town of Truckee is continuing to partner with the Tahoe Resource Conservation District and Truckee-Donner Recreation & Park District to implement watercraft inspections for Donner Lake.

In an effort to prevent the spread of aquatic invasive species, the town is collecting survey data and public comment about best management practices related to the access of Donner Lake at the public launch ramp, such as extending staff hours, installing an access gate, and invasive species self-inspection training for boaters.

The goal is to increase protection and ensure that all boats are inspected prior to launching every time. The town is seeking input on the type of access desired by all users and boaters provided at the public launch including the hours, days and months of operation.

Watercraft inspections are mandatory for all motorized and/or trailered watercraft launching on Donner Lake, per town law, at various inspection stations across the region. Prices vary. Visit truckeeboatinspections.com for information on boat inspections.
