Mount Shasta Bioregional Ecology Center v. County of Siskiyou

ELR Citation: 42 ELR 20217
Nos. C064930, (Cal. App. Ct. 3d Dist., 09/26/2012)

A California appellate court upheld a county's approval of a project to expand an existing wood veneer manufacturing facility in order to permit cogeneration of electricity for resale. Environmental and citizens groups filed a petition for review, claiming that the environmental impact report for the project failed to include an adequate analysis of alternatives and failed to fully disclose, analyze, and mitigate air quality, noise, and water impacts of the project in violation of the California Environmental Quality Act. But although there were some minor deficiencies and inaccuracies in the environmental impact report for the project, they did not prejudice the environmental review process. The lower court, therefore, did not err in denying the petition for review.
