An extensive analysis of Federal and state agency activities and authorities is presented and it reveals the scope and depth of involvement. Intergovernmental problems are identified in the areas of water supply and sewerage services, transportation, air quality and water quality. The most serious of these problems is the protection of water quality in Lake Tahoe by means of control of erosion and surface water runoff. Federal oversight and control in the management of public lands is adequate to preserve the fragile ecology of Lake Tahoe.
