Spitzer Opposes NY Resort

The New York Times:
Attorney General Eliot Spitzer’s office said yesterday that it opposed a luxury resort planned for the Catskill Mountains, calling it an “unacceptable risk” to New York City’s drinking water system. James M. Tierney, the watershed inspector general in Mr. Spitzer’s office, said in a letter to federal officials that the proposal for a large resort flanking the Belleayre Mountain Ski Center would undercut the city’s efforts to avoid building a water filtration plant at a cost of $6 billion to $8 billion.
