I <br />have been a Glenshire resident since 1988. <br />Firstly, in the Biological Resources chapter: <br />In reference to 13I0-3: No reference is made to a study of <br />Glenshire Pond and how it would be impacted by this <br />development. All the wetlands within the CS development <br />drain into the Glenshire Pond, and eventually the Truckee <br />river. There are many species of birds migrating through this <br />important place, and nesting occurs also. White pelicans, geese <br />many species of ducks, grebes, and shorebirds. There is <br />potential for the pond to be so adversely affected by <br />development run -off as to become a toxic algae wasteland. If <br />the CS development only is partially build out (as happened in <br />Elkhorn Ridge, with no oversight apparently anymore on the <br />erosion and run off there) , I'm afraid a severe consequence <br />would be the toxic ruin of our pond and violation of the Clean <br />Water Act. Would Glenshire residents be responsible <br />financially for the clean up of the pond too? I do not believe the <br />wetlands and pond have been adequately studied, especially if <br />the CS developers are not successful and responsibility is left to <br />
