The U.S. Forest Service has scheduled a public meeting Thursday to provide information on its Upper Truckee River restoration project, which will begin in early June.
The meeting will take place from 6 to 8 p.m. at the forest supervisor's office, 35 College Drive, South Lake Tahoe.
The purpose is to answer questions, give an overview of this summer's activities and explain how public access will be limited during construction due to safety concerns.
This summer's project is part of a larger effort to restore the lower nine miles of the river, replacing the existing channel.
The goal is to create a channel that is more stable, is connected to the adjacent floodplain, provides better aquatic habitat, supports a healthier meadow ecosystem and reduces the amount of fine sediment that travels into Lake Tahoe.
