9781494777043: Tessie, Quagga Mussels, and Other Lake Tahoe Myths
Reseña del editor:

Well before quagga mussels were found in southern Nevada’s Lake Mead in 2007, the Tahoe Regional Planning Agency (TRPA) and other federal agencies had prepared protective measures in case the mussels were detected west of the Continental Divide. Without examining the biological requirements of quagga mussels, the TRPA ignored dozens of scientific studies that showed quagga can’t reproduce and survive in Lake Tahoe and implemented the nation’s most aggressive watercraft inspection program. As water quality studies increasingly demonstrate that quagga can't survive in Lake Tahoe and its nearby lakes and reservoirs, the TRPA and their scientific partners have expanded the list of aquatic invasive species that could potentially infest Lake Tahoe. However, no reputable studies have been advanced that demonstrate that New Zealand mud snails, spiny water fleas, or hydrilla — the "new" organisms that boat inspections are protecting Tahoe from — can sustain in the lake. As the Town of Truckee considers whether to copy the five-year-old Lake Tahoe boat inspection program at Donner Lake, a draft edition of Tessie, Quagga Mussels, and Other Tahoe Myths has been given to the members of the Truckee Town Council and is made available to the public for their critical review. Publication of the marketed first edition will be withheld until the town council has had time to review the book and related material, and for those who may be critical of the book's science to comment. Documentation of factual errors and additional information are welcomed.

This book is in pre-publication. An updated draft as of 2/2/15 is available. Well before quagga mussels were found in southern Nevada’s Lake Mead in 2007, the Tahoe Regional Planning Agency and other federal agencies had prepared protective measures in case the mussels were detected in the West. Without examining the biological requirements of quagga mussels, the TRPA ignored dozens of scientific studies that showed quagga can’t reproduce and survive in Lake Tahoe and implemented the nation’s most aggressive watercraft inspection program. As water quality studies increasingly demonstrated that quagga can't survive in Lake Tahoe and its nearby lakes and reservoirs, the TRPA and their scientific partners expanded the list of aquatic invasive species that could potentially infest Lake Tahoe. However no reputable studies have demonstrated that New Zealand mud snails, spiny water fleas, or hydrilla — the organisms that TRPA says boat inspections protect Tahoe from — can live in the lake either.
