Lake Tahoe, CA - Landmark Federal Lawsuit Filed to Block Saturation of Lake Tahoe Region with Cell Towers

Three environmental non-profits and Monica Eisenstecken, a lifelong resident of South Lake Tahoe, have filed a potentially precedent-setting litigation against the Tahoe Regional Planning Agency, Verizon Wireless, the Tahoe Prosperity Center, and a local property owner...all in an effort to protect one of the world’s greatest natural treasures from a looming telecom takeover.

Congratulations to both the Environmental Health Trust and the Children's Health Defense for their tireless efforts challenging the FCC's outdated and insufficient wireless radiation public exposure guidelines.
