Decision Support Framework for the Upper Truckee River
Peer reviews of the 2011 and 2015 TRPA threshold evaluations encouraged the agency to break out of the silo evaluation used in the current threshold standard system, and to consider a more ecosystem-based approach to threshold evaluation and resource management. This is particularly important when evaluating threshold standards that cut across multiple resource categories, or projects expected to benefit multiple threshold standards.
A project, conceived by the Council, will contribute information and tools relevant to a more integrated approach to threshold assessment, as well as objectively evaluating large scale projects purporting to provide multiple benefits in a changing environment. This project will initiate assembly of the structural elements necessary to develop a decision support framework for the largest watershed in the Tahoe Basin.
