Acronym Decoder

Inherent with complicated restoration efforts like saving Lake Tahoe's clarity are many government agencies and the need to create acronyms.  This tradition is alive and well at Lake Tahoe!  This glossary also offers an ever growing list of locally used acronyms; we hope to become your acronym decoder resource!  If you have an acronym that does not appear here, please Contact TIIMS!  We would love to help locate it's definition and source or just offer a place to display your acronym "find."
