INCLINE VILLAGE, Nev.–The Memorial Point scenic overlook and restroom, which is part of Lake Tahoe Nevada State Park, located one mile north of Sand Harbor, will be closed from June 4 to approximately June 25, 2007. The closure is due to construction and facility upgrades occurring at the site. Alternative restroom facilities are available at Sand Harbor.
This upgrade is part of a larger effort to improve the handling of sewage affluent at the park. At the completion of the project, all of the sewage treatment facilities will be removed from both Sand Harbor and Memorial Point and effluent will be pumped from the park and treated at the Incline Village General Improvement District Sewage Treatment Facility. This project represents a significant partnership between local, state and federal agencies safeguarding Tahoe’s unique and irreplaceable natural qualities.
The Division of State Parks is sorry for the inconvenience this project may have on visitors to the park. The timing of this work was unavoidable since Memorial Point is the next step in a project that started much earlier this year and the very limited construction period available.
The Nevada Division of State Parks plans, develops and maintains a system of parks and recreation areas for the use and enjoyment of more than 2.3 million visitors a year. The division was established in 1963 by the Nevada Legislature to form a new state park agency within the Department of Conservation and Natural Resources. The division manages and maintains 24 parks in Nevada.
