State water board to hear Lake Tahoe pesticide proposal

The California State Water Resources is scheduled to vote on a proposal that would allow the use of aquatic pesticides at Lake Tahoe under certain circumstances. The State Water Board is scheduled to consider the amendment to the Lahontan Regional Water Quality Control Board’s Basin Plan during a May 15 meeting in Sacramento. The regional water board approved the plan in December. Existing rules effectively prohibit pesticide application to water within the agency’s jurisdiction.
