CSPA, Coalition Submits Amicus to Supreme Court in Scott River Case

On 19 September 2014, CSPA, Karuk Tribe, California Coastkeeper Alliance, Northcoast Environmental Center, Friends of the Eel River and Clean Water Action submitted a Amici Curiae letter to the California Supreme Court regarding the appeal of Siskiyou County to the decision by the Sacramento Superior Court that the public trust doctrine protects the Scott River from harm caused by overwithdrawal of the river’s interconnected groundwater. Excessive groundwater pumping has literally dewatered significant reaches of the Scott River. The Coalition letter says that the Scott River case raises issues of environmental and legal significance as great as those in the Court’s Mono Lake Decision.
