Joanne Marchetta on Tahoe Regional Plan (3)



2012 Interview with Joanne Marchetta, Tahoe Regional Planning Agency (3)


“Let the system focus on the places where you get the biggest environmental bang for the buck,” this is the advice that the Tahoe Regional Planning Agency (TRPA) took from the Total Maximum Daily Load (TMDL). The flexibility that we have built into the system is based on this new paradigm that says: focus on the locations where you can get the greatest pollutant load reduction, says Joanne Marchetta, TRPA Executive. The pollutants at issue are ultra-fine sediment, nitrogen and phosphorus. Creating the regulatory flexibility to enable jurisdictions to go after these pollutants is a high priority undertaking in the Tahoe planning process.
