When too much sediment enters a river, its water quality significantly decreases. Maintaining high water quality is important to preserve the habitat for fishes, particular the two federally listed fish species, Cui-ui and Lahontan Cutthroat Trout, found in the Middle Truckee River. The California State Water Resources Control Board has flagged our river for containing a high concentration of sediment. To restore the Truckee River to its previous health, we are reducing erosion and recovering all road sand before it can enter the river.
