One of many projects under the Kings Beach Water Quality Plan, the Lower Secline Water Quality Improvement Project will pave and formalize parking at Secline Street and Brockway Avenue in Kings Beach on the north shore of Lake Tahoe. The project site is on Secline Street south of State Route 28 and Brockway Vista Avenue in unincorporated Placer County (See location map).
This paving and water quality improvement project is intended to prevent fine sediment from the unpaved roadways from entering Lake Tahoe through stormwater runoff. Both Secline Street and Brockway Vista are within 200 feet of Lake Tahoe and both are unpaved or in poor condition, which has impacted lake water clarity over time.
This project is designed to divert runoff, improve environmental conditions for the lake, add access for emergency vehicles and create stable terrain for residents walking or biking in the area.
The project also calls for the paving of 13 of the existing parking spaces on the lakeside portion of Secline Street along with paving the access way to front of the North Tahoe Public Utility District sewer lift station, which is adjacent to the right of way.
The Tahoe Basin Area Plan calls for a 10-foot-wide boardwalk down Brockway Vista Avenue and the project is designed to include land along the new water quality and pavement project that will accommodate this in the future.
Placer County officials held a public meeting to provide an update on the project Wednesday, Dec. 14, at the North Tahoe Events Center.
