The project includes the acquisition of the assets of the Lake Forest Water Company by the TCPUD, and the reconstruction of the water system within the Lake Forest Water Improvement District (LFWID) service area to meet Federal and State drinking water standards, as well as fire protection standards. The reconstruction project consisted of approximately 2,500 lineal feet (LF) of 10-inch pipe, 7,500 LF of 8-inch pipe, 600 LF of new 4-inch pipe, and 10,000 LF of small diameter and back-lot water mains. Water meters were installed with new service laterals to each customer, and 27 fire hydrants were installed within the right-of-way. The interconnection ties the new system to the existing TCPUD water supply and storage system, which surrounds the LFWID.
This lakefront project involved converting a partially built timeshare development into a new single-family residential Planned Development.

The Lake Forest Public Boat Launch is operated by the Tahoe City Public Utility District. The project was to replace the existing ramp and restore it to its original elevations. Sediment accumulation and deterioration have resulted in structural failure of the ramp. AEC was the prime consultant providing overall coordination for the rehabilitation project. Services included design and regulatory permitting for the 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.
