The Martis Valley Trail (MVT) is part of a planned 62-mile trail network referred to as the “Resort Triangle.” Covering about 9 miles, the MVT section extends between Truckee and the Tahoe Basin. MVT is being completed in phases, all of which AEC has contributed to in various capacities. Our Planning, Surveying, and Engineering teams have provided background reviews, compliance assistance, surveys and mapping services, civil design, and several other services for this section of the multi-use trail.
Auerbach Engineering Corporation worked with Alpine Meadows in developing a lift alignment for the Sherwood Chair, completed in 2005. Support services necessary for TRPA and Placer County approval were provided by AEC as well as a drainage analysis for the entire resort and surrounding amenities for the creation of a phased BMP and Snow Management Plan.
AEC completed aerial control surveys, coordination of aerial mapping products, and route surveys for the proposed realignment of Highway 89 south of Tahoe City.

Planning and design for the relocation of the downtown Tahoe City Fire Station to a site located off Fairway Drive in Tahoe City. The project includes site work for a 20,000 square foot public safety center including roadway improvements to Fairway Drive, parking, new utilities and utility relocations, and a storm water collection and treatment system. AEC completed a report outlining environmental review and regulatory strategies, including resource reports covering wetlands identification, biological constraints, traffic and cultural resource issues. AEC prepared the environmental document and was responsible for all permits and regulatory approvals including 404 and 401 permitting for mitigation of wetland impacts as well as SEZ transfers through TRPA from an outside entity. The largest challenges of this project has been the impact of the footprint and siting the development to avoid the stream environment zone and wetlands that surround it. Also important, is the development of a storm water management plan that is acceptable to the TRPA and Lahontan, which provides treatment of runoff at reasonable cost.
This project was in coordination with the North Tahoe PUD Utility District, located within the Carnelian Bay and Tahoe Vista areas. AEC compiled a comprehensive list of the potential utility conflicts that could arise during construction of the Caltrans Erosion Control Project. AEC developed improvement plans for the relocation of gravity sewer systems and the water transmission pipelines. AEC also provided construction inspection services for the relocation of those facilities.

This project consisted of ground control and aerial mapping for over 2,200 acres of ranch land for planning of future wastewater conveyance and storage facilities. Deliverables included #D, 2D and DTM mapping files in AutoCAD format on a horizontal datum NAD83 and vertical datum NGVD29, as well as digital color ortho-photography at 0.25-foot pixel.AEC was contracted to map the project area consisting of 2,200 acres.
The existing boat ramp and pier at Lake Forest is one of few public use facilities of its kind around the lake. Due to its design and location it provides safe and convenient access to thousands of users every year. The rehabilitation project included replacement and widening of the boat ramp in accordance with the California Department of Boating and Waterways’ design standards, and dredging of lake access to the previous dredged elevation of 6219’ to enable boat operation at lower lake levels. AEC was retained for civil design, permitting, construction support, as well as topographic and bathymetric surveys for design and planning purposes.
