User base citizen participation for the Tahoe Regional Planning Agency
The Lake Tahoe Basin is an area of unique and unsurpassed beauty situated high in the Sierra Mountains along the California-Nevada border. The 500 square mile Basin is divided lengthwise by the stateline with 75 percent of the land area and 70 percent of the lake surface area located in California. The 190 square mile lake is famed for its scenic beauty and pristine clarity, which has been able to resist pollution until recently because of its physical features and 1,645 foot depth (U.S., Congressional Record, 1969).
