The State

The California Tahoe Conservancy has approved a plan to buy 1,800 lots in the Tahoe Basin by June 30, 1986, in order to protect water quality by preventing construction on land prone to erode into the lake. Most of the lots, scattered through 13 different watersheds west and south of the lake, will be bought from owners who are unable to build on the land because of environmental restrictions. The conservancy was established earlier this year to supervise spending of $85 million from the sale of bonds approved by California voters in 1982 to buy environmentally sensitive land in the Tahoe area.
