Realigning the Lake Tahoe Interagency Monitoring Program for use as a monitoring tool
LTIMP Station Loads [xlsx]
Please contact Dr. Robert Coats with questions regarding the final report.
Since 1980, the Lake Tahoe Interagency Monitoring Program (LTIMP) has measured discharge and sampled water quality at up to twenty stations in Tahoe Basin streams. Measured constituents have included suspended sediment and various forms of nitrogen and phosphorus.
In order to improve the usefulness of the program and the existing data base, this project:
The time series analyses show significant long-term downward trends in some constituent loads and some streams, which are attributed to long-term recovery of watersheds from historic disturbance. The confidence-limit spreadsheet will be a useful tool for managers in modifying LTIMP to make it a streamlined and effective tool for future water quality monitoring in the Tahoe Basin.
