El Dorado County Taxpayers for Quality Growth v. El Dorado, County of

ELR Citation: 34 ELR 20117
Nos. No. C044541, (Cal. App. 3d Dist., 09/14/2004)

A California appellate court held that a county correctly decided that a reclamation plan for a mining operation would not have a significant effect on the environment and properly approved the plan based on a negative declaration. The county provided a legally adequate description of the project, and the county did not improperly segment the reclamation plan project from a proposed mining expansion project. In addition, the county properly determined that the potential geologic, wildlife/habitat, and air quality impacts did not require an environmental impact report.
