Alteration of streamflow regimes, such as water diversions, can result in adverse impacts to stream habitat diversity, function, and productivity of aquatic ecosystems and organisms. Past streamflow diversions exist in the Tahoe Region for a variety of reasons including providing water for agriculture and sending water to communities outside the Tahoe Region. Regional policies are aimed at removing existing streamflow diversions and prohibiting new diversions.
