Best Management Practices (BMPs)

BMPs are measures taken to minimize soil erosion and capture polluted water before it enters Lake Tahoe. This helps improve water quality and reduce the decline of Lake Tahoe’s clarity. By implementing BMPs integrated with Fire Defensible Space (FDS) practices, property owners can help reduce the loss of Lake Tahoe’s clarity and protect against the threat of catastrophic wildfire.”
