Attached are a final ruling on our Scott/Shasta Rivers ITP lawsuit and a press release about the ruling. Please circulate as you see fit and let me know if you have any questions.
We have a lot of work to do still in the Scott and Shasta Rivers of Northern California, but this judgement sets an important sideboard in place as we seek a solution that can truly work for fish, farmers and the people who depend on healthy rivers and aquatic life throughout the Klamath Basin. Many thanks to EarthJustice and its skilled attorneys and press team for their hard work on this case.
In another piece of related good news, California Senator Doug LaMalfa withdrew SB665 from the legislative hearing schedule this week, so it doesn’t look like that sneak attack on CDFG Section 1602 permits and permitting authority in CA will go anywhere for now.
