Tahoe South Press Releases
Taking Care of Lake Tahoe
The Lake Tahoe Visitors Authority would like to thank all of our community members, visitors, businesses and agencies who have helped keep our Lake Tahoe beaches clean throughout a busy summer season. Debris on Lake Tahoe’s beaches affects everyone’s enjoyment of the lake, and trash and debris on the beaches and streets can easily find its way to the lake and adversely impact lake clarity, water quality and wildlife.
Public participation is part of basin-wide environmental stewardship initiatives. The LTVA continues to move forward with the entire community to contribute clean up resources through Team Fireworks, (www.ltva.org/teamfireworks). The site provides visitors and residents information on how to recognize and report potential fireworks debris and generate immediate response if suspected. The LTVA has established a hot line 775-410-0417 and an email address (firstname.lastname@example.org) to communicate information on debris. If someone finds what they suspect might be an unexploded shell, they are to call 911.

LTVA’s mission is to drive tourism and awareness for Tahoe South through focused messaging. A critical part of that message has always been preserving lake clarity. The Lake Tahoe Visitors Authority, City of South Lake Tahoe, League to Save Lake Tahoe, U.S. Forest Service, South Tahoe Refuse & Recycling, and Douglas County have partnered to coordinate the “Adopt-a-Beach” program following the Fourth of July and Labor Day firework displays.
