LAKE TAHOE, Nev. -- California Attorney General Bill Lockyer, among others, has weighed in on the pollution impact of a controversial private pier development along the Nevada side of Lake Tahoe that locals fear will increase pollution in the popular tourist destination. Lockyer recently joined the Nevada Department of Environmental Protection, the Lahontan Regional Water Quality Control Board and the local Tahoe Lakefront Owners' Association in saying the final "Shorezone" development plan did not clarify the effects of its pollution mitigation measures. The Shorezone plan's first of five public hearings will be held Wednesday, Dec. 13.
