Letter — Senators need to work in tandem

Tahoe Daily Tribune

I enjoyed reading Mr. Crofton’s article from May 7, entitled, “Boxer tenacious in quest to protect wilderness.” The Meiss Meadows area contains the headwaters of the Upper Truckee River, which provides a vast majority of the clean water that flows into Lake Tahoe. We have all invested a great deal of energy and money — including millions of taxpayer dollars — working to keep Tahoe blue. When Meiss is protected as wilderness we will have made significant progress in furthering this effort. Sen. Dianne Feinstein has always been a champion of improving water quality in the lake. I hope she also seizes this opportunity and works with Sen. Barbara Boxer to secure wilderness protection for Meiss and the other wild places in California.
