Join us on Feb. 16 at 8:00 p.m. EST (5:00 p.m. PST) as we announce the details of a landmark federal lawsuit in the U.S. District Court in Sacramento against the Tahoe Regional Planning Agency (TRPA), Verizon Wireless, the Tahoe Prosperity Center, Inc., and a South Lake Tahoe property owner.
The suit was brought in November by South Lake Tahoe resident Monica Eisenstecken, and three environmental nonprofit organizations, including Environmental Health Trust. The suit seeks to prevent the looming proliferation of 5G-enabled “small cell” antennas and cell towers throughout the Tahoe region until rigorous environmental reviews of the proposed infrastructure have been completed by the TRPA as mandated by its own rules.
Ms. Eisenstecken, who is electrosensitive, first considered a lawsuit after she was notified that her neighbor was seeking to install a 112-foot-tall wireless cell tower just 150 feet from her residence! Installation of the tower in its proposed location would make Ms. Eisenstecken's home uninhabitable to her.
