Sewage-spill fine will get public hearing

A public hearing will be held on May 11 on the penalty for a sewage spill that closed beaches on the North Shore last summer.

Lahontan Water Board will consider whether to accept, modify or reject a fine of $700,000 recommended by the agency’s staff.

The hearing is the second item on the board’s agenda that day, which means it will begin shortly after the meeting starts at 9:30 a.m.

Representatives from Lahontan, the owners of the property, and the contractor who severed the sewer line will each have 60 minutes to make presentations. Other comments will be limited to five minutes.

The meeting will take place in Kings Beach at the North Tahoe Conference Center, 8318 North Lake Boulevard.
