Ski Run Marina is an integral component of a redevelopment project coordinated by the South Tahoe Redevelopment Agency in the northeast section of the South Lake Tahoe, Calif. During the late 1990s, the first stage of the redevelopment project replaced existing Marina buildings with a commercial center and courtyard (Marina Village at Ski Run). A number of other area improvements were also made to enhance public access to Lake Tahoe.

When the Lahontan Regional Water Quality Control Board (LRWQCB) determined that the existing detention basin used to manage marina runoff was not meeting water quality permit objectives, it issued a cease-and-desist order requiring the problem be addressed. To resolve the order, the marina installed a highly effective passive stormwater treatment system to treat its runoff. Now the system easily meets one of the toughest water quality standards in the nation.
