Lake Tahoe Environmental Improvement Program



Tahoe Regional Planning Agency (TRPA)




The Lake Tahoe Environmental Improvement Program (EIP) is a landscape-scale collaborative partnership between nearly 80 local, state, and federal government agencies, private entities, scientists, and the Washoe Tribe of Nevada and California to achieve the environmental goals of the bi-state Tahoe Regional Planning Compact. The bi-state compact charges the Tahoe Regional Planning Agency (TRPA) with establishing a regional plan (The EIP) for the Tahoe Basin with the mandate to achieve environmental standards. The USDA Forest Service, which manages nearly 80 percent of the land in the Tahoe Basin, currently co-leads the Tahoe Interagency Executive Steering Committee, which governs the EIP, in partnership with the states of California and Nevada, local governments, the private sector, the Washoe Tribe, and the Tahoe Science Advisory Council.
