  • Informed Use of Water Resources

    Tahoe Keys property owners are fortunate to own our private water deep well sources of supply. The association recognizes that every Californian is responsible to properly manage their use of this precious resource. The Keys has had a water conservation program in place for several years. The TKPOA water conservation rules may be viewed at the link above.

    Even property street addresses can run their sprinklers Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays. Odd numbers on Tuesdays, Thursdays and Sundays. No irrigation on Saturdays.

    California is in the grip of the third year of drought, and more stringent measures may be required to assure compliance with water conservation rules. Follow the top link above to see water usage data and current constervation target.
    Security and Water Company personnel will be contacting homeowners as needed to correct miss-use of Keys water. Fines may be assessed for deliberate or repeated violations.

    image Please keep your irrigation sprinklers correctly adjusted to avoid watering non-landscaped areas, like hardscape and streets. Doing so eliminates waste and runoff that can carry particulates to the lake.

  • Water Department 2014 Consumer Confidence Report.

    We test the drinking water quality as required by State and Federal Regulations. This report shows the results of our monitoring for the period of January 1 - December 31, 2013. Type of water source(s) in use: Groundwater, Three wells pumping from aquifers, and Purchased water from South Tahoe Public Utility District

    The sources of drinking water (both tap water and bottled water) include rivers, lakes, streams, ponds, reservoirs, springs, and wells. As water travels over the surface of the land or through the ground, it dissolves naturally-occurring minerals and, in some cases, radioactive material, and can pick up substances resulting from the presence of animals or from human activity.

    Contaminants that may be present in source water include:

    • Microbial contaminants, such as viruses and bacteria that may come from sewage treatment plants, septic systems, agricultural livestock operations, and wildlife.
    • Inorganic contaminants, such as salts and metals, that can be naturally-occurring or result from urban stormwater runoff, industrial or domestic wastewater discharges, oil and gas production, mining, or farming.
    • Pesticides and herbicides that may come from a variety of sources such as agriculture, urban stormwater runoff, and residential uses.
    • Organic chemical contaminants, including synthetic and volatile organic chemicals that are byproducts of industrial processes and petroleum production, and can also come from gas stations, urban stormwater runoff, agricultural application, and septic systems.
    • Radioactive contaminants that can be naturally-occurring or be the result of oil and gas production and mining activities.

    In order to ensure that tap water is safe to drink, the USEPA and the state Department of Public Health (Department) prescribe regulations that limit the amount of certain contaminants in water provided by public water systems. Department regulations also establish limits for contaminants in bottled water that must provide the same protection for public health.

  • The first two weeks of the harvesting season are completed. Similar to last year, the season started off slow due to the water being deeper and colder, which has stunted the plant growth up to this point. Due to this, we suspended harvesting in June and focused on fragment control. We started harvesting after the July 4th holiday and are now in full operations.
