Proposed settlement in Tahoe ski resort complaint
NORTHSTAR-AT-TAHOE ” A Lake Tahoe-area ski resort is expected to agree to a settlement with environmental regulators over construction-related water quality violations.
Officials with California’s Lahontan Regional Water Quality Control Board say under the proposal, Northstar Mountain Properties will pay $500,000 in fines and agree to finance $2.25 million in environmental improvements at the resort.
The board is scheduled to meet Wednesday in Kings Beach, Calif.
Officials say the 2006 violations occurred when storm runoff from construction sites deposited sediment into tributaries of Martis Creek that feeds the Truckee River.
