Guatemalan Lake Looks to Tahoe for Solutions
From the Tahoe Daily Tribune:
“During the 2013 Lake Tahoe Summit on Aug. 19, experts met with Guatemalan representatives to discuss the problems of the area’s largest, and severely impaired, lake.
“Using Lake Tahoe as an exemplary model, Sudeep Chandra, a limnologist at the University of Nevada, Reno, brought a group of Guatemalan experts to the summit in order to use Tahoe’s work as an example to help them repair the damage from wastewater and sewage poured into Lago de Atitlán, or Lake Atitlán.”
