Vehicle Abatement

The accumulation on private and public property of abandoned vehicles promotes blight and deterioration of neighborhoods. It invites plundering, increases fire hazards and hazards to the health and safety of minors, and provides homes for rodents and other pests.

Tahoe EH, in conjunction with the Sheriff's Department, is responsible for the removal of abandoned and inoperable vehicles from the Tahoe region.

Contact the Placer County Sheriff's office at (530) 581-6330 or Environmental Health Tahoe Office at (530) 581-6240.

River Monitoring

Tahoe EH monitors both commercial and private rafting activities and their effects on the condition of the riparian zone along the Truckee River. Tahoe Sierra Recreation (TSR) and Mountain Air Sports (MAS) are the permitted commercial rafting businesses operating this section.
