During a beachfront celebration with approximately 150 guests, Nevada Governor Brian Sandoval commended the project for its long term environmental and economic benefits.

“This project will complement what the state of Nevada and all of Lake Tahoe is doing to protect this national treasure,” Sandoval said. “… This project is going to prevent thousands of tons of sediment from coming into Lake Tahoe. It’s going to help keep the lake clean. We know this one of the greatest destinations in the country, and in the world, and we want to preserve and protect it.”
