Civic Improvement Comm. v. Volpe

Citation: 6 ELR 20797
No. No. C-C-72-31, (W.D.N.C., 09/10/1976) Ordering preparation of SEIS

The court requires defendants to supplement their environmental impact statement for a proposed highway with new noise studies. The earlier impact statement mistakenly assumed that the Charlotte City Code prohibited diesel trucks from using the highway, and thus did not fulfill the requirements of NEPA. The supplement must also analyze ways of reducing the noise impact of the road upon nearby recreational areas, including the possibility of slight revisions of the proposed route.
