Large naturally-formed bodies of water are able to adjust to human intervention in many cases. What else would account for the improvement in both clarity and quality of the water in Lake Tahoe nearly year after year, despite the increase in boating, and yes... the one night a year annual fireworks? This isn't to say that regulations or laws should not be followed, and if indeed the fireworks at the Lake violate laws, that's an entirely different matter, and those laws must be complied with.

the Comments below indicate ignorance and bias. There are rules and consequences for the lake, which they pointed out. these should have been addressed. I suggest U BBQ that "weakest link". This lake is a national treasure which has been impacted by human activities. Also, one major sourcew of reno's domestic water supply.

That's now how it works here in America. One person, one lawyer, one judge or one politician can ruin anything for the rest of the population. It's the American weakest link theory.
