Project Near Donner Site Draws Fire

August 25, 2003|From Associated Press

TRUCKEE, Calif. — Environmentalists and a property owner are clashing over a proposed commercial water facility near a popular Sierra Nevada park that pays homage to the Donner Party.

At issue is Walter M. Harvey's plan to collect water from a well on 26 acres he owns in Coldstream Canyon near Donner Memorial State Park.

The Truckee-based Mountain Area Preservation Foundation and the California Department of Parks and Recreation plan to appeal the Placer County Planning Commission's Aug. 14 recommendation to approve the project.
