Project Title: Tahoe Science Advisory Council Comments and Recommendations on the TRPA Threshold Assessment Process

The Tahoe Science Advisory Council was tasked (August 2016) by its executive committee to review assessment materials related to the 2015 Threshold Evaluation (TVAL) Report, and to contribute subsequently to a technical review of the TRPA’s existing threshold standards. The initial step of Council engagement in this process was to provide guidance on the proposed assessment process that will be used by the TRPA as a starting point in its Threshold Update Initiative. A document describing the TRPA  assessment process is included below.  Also included below are a copy of the Council's comments on the proposed assessment process, and a second memo from the Council  summarizing its review of the TRPA response to Council comments.
