River-Friendly Landscaping Evaluations Offered by the Truckee River Watershed CouncilArchitectural Standards, Association News, Forestry, Member News
Did you know the average residential lot in our area loses one ton of soil per year? This is a major source of pollution in our streams and the Truckee River. Rainfall, snow-melt, and even irrigation picks up pollutants such as fine sediment from bare soil, and carries it into rivers, wetlands and lakes.
River-Friendly Landscaping is a FREE, voluntary program to improve your yard. Participating homeowners receive landscaping recommendations from the Truckee River Watershed Council to prevent soil erosion, conserve water and incorporate native, drought-tolerant and low fire risk vegetation into their landscape.
Homeowners can receive up to $3,000 reimbursement to install soil erosion control measures and/or remove and/or replace lawn. It starts with a free site evaluation by a TRWC Conservation Assistant.
For additional information, or to schedule a site evaluation for your property, please contact Eben Swain at: 530-550-8760 ext. 7 or email@example.com. For more information visit truckeeriverwc.org.
