Work and schedules will be weather dependent. There are two main projects: 1) Starting from Lausanne Way, along the east side of Northwoods Blvd., ending at the Northwoods Clubhouse. 2)  Starting at Alder Creek Rd., along the east side of Fjord Rd., continuing along the southeast side of Northwoods Blvd., continuing along the north side of Slalom Way, ending near the ski area parking lots. There are no anticipated road closures due to this work but, for everyone’s safety, please be aware and cautious when crews are on the road.

Wildlife Best Practices

Management urges all members and guests to respect our wildlife neighbors including bears, mountain lions, bobcats, deer, etc. and protect them as well as your homes and yourself by limiting interaction with them and not unknowingly or knowingly inviting them into your home, garage or decks.  Follow a few key best practices to reducing conflict with the wildlife here in Tahoe Donner:

  1. Keep all garbage, food and other items like laundry detergent, lotions, etc. locked in enclosed containers
  2. Clean out food and food wrappers from cars and secure vehicle and close windows
  3. Secure house at all times and do not leave your garage door open with trash and/or other items available for animals
  4. Keep barbecue grills clean;
  5. Keep bird feeders off decks and inaccessible to bears

For more bear and wildlife awareness information you can visit, Town of Truckee’s Bear Awareness site www.townoftruckee.com/index.aspx?page=1277 and Tahoe Wild Bear Council’s site www.tahoewildbears.org/.

TDPUD Pipeline Construction for Summer 2013

Truckee Donner PUD Pipeline Construction for Summer 2013

Truckee Donner PUD is contracting for water mainline replacements in the Tahoe Donner Area this summer (see map below). Work will begin in early May and will run through the summer construction period.

The work will begin on the Northwoods at Coyote Moon section as per the contract documents. The rest of the schedule will be discussed with the contractor at an upcoming pre-construction meeting once the contract documents are in place. The work will be sequential moving from one location to another so only one area will be impacted at a time.

The Truckee Donner PUD has undertaken this water mainline replacement project to address persistent leaks and an aging water system in Tahoe Donner. The Truckee Donner PUD has made significant investments in replacing Tahoe Donner’s water distribution system and fixing leaks over the last decade, resulting in substantial water savings.  Although these projects can cause some short-term traffic disruptions and delays, the reduced water waste and associated energy savings due to reduced pumping costs are there for the long-term!

Download a larger PDF file of the above image for more detail.

Any questions regarding this project should be directed to the District’s Water System Engineer, Neil Kaufman, at 530-582-3950.
