Voluntary boat inspections at Donner Lake, area reservoirs

For the second consecutive season, boat inspections and education relating to aquatic invasive species will take place at Donner Lake and Boca, Prosser and Stampede reservoirs through Sept. 30, said Peter Brumis, spokesman for the Tahoe Resource Conservation District, which operates inspection stations.

However, unlike Lake Tahoe, where boaters must undergo inspections and can be fined thousands of dollars for willfully misleading inspectors, the inspections carried out at the other alpine lakes are voluntary, Brumis said.

In alignment with these goals, Tahoe RCD has opened a new office in the Tin Can Building in Truckee, located at 10116 Jibboom St. For more information, visit or contact David Kean at (530) 587-4911.
