National Audubon Soc'y v. Andrus

Citation: 7 ELR 20414
No. No. 76-0943, (D.D.C., 05/11/1977)

The parties agree to a settlement of this suit challenging the adequacy of the final environmental impact statement (EIS) prepared in connection with a proposed legislative authorization for construction of the Bureau of Reclamation's Garrison Diversion Unit. Noting the President's recent recommendation that the project be substantially modified, the parties stipulate that, with certain specific exceptions, no further construction or land acquisition will be carried out.The federal defendants also agree to prepare a comprehensive supplementary EIS describing all reasonable alternatives to the project and to file a draft with the Council on Environmental Quality by January 1, 1978. A fish and wildlife mitigation plan is also to be prepared. For the moving papers in this litigation, see ELR 65351, 65375.
