CSPA and POWER Sue Stanislaus County for CEQA Violations

CSPA and Protecting Our Water and Environmental Resources (POWER) have filed a lawsuit against Stanislaus County for approving hundreds of permits to drill wells without environmental review, as required by the California Environmental Quality Act (CEQA).  A substantial increase in the number of new wells is depleting area groundwater and, where the wells are hydraulically connected to steams, reducing already inadequate instream flow.  Plaintiffs are asking the court to declare that Stanislaus County is in violation of CEQA, enjoin the County from approving new well construction until it complies with CEQA.  The Law Offices of Thomas N. Lippe is representing CSPA and POWER in this matter.
