Butte Environmental Council v. Glenn-Colusa Irrigation District, et. al
On December 17, 2007 the Butte Environmental Council filed a petition for writ of mandate against the Glenn-Colusa Irrigation District for alleged violations of the California Environmental Quality Act. The petition concerns the plans of the district—and of real parties in interest Orland Unit Water Users Association, Orland-Artois Water District, Department of Water Resources, and the U.S. Bureau of Reclamation—to drill test wells in order to evaluate the function of a Glenn County aquifer. Petitioners argue that the GCID must prepare a full environmental impact report prior to drilling and operating the test wells.
