Ventura Waterkeeper Sues CA Over Recycled Water Approvals

June 16th, 2016

As part of a campaign to ensure reasonable use of all of California’s scarce water resources, including recycled water, on December 8, 2015, Wishtoyo filed a lawsuit in Los Angeles Superior Court against the California State Water Resources Control Board and Los Angeles Regional Water Quality Control Board. Ventura Waterkeeper’s, also know as Wishtoyo, Petition for Writ of Mandate and Complaint for Declaratory and Injunctive Relief seeks to ensure that the Boards break their patterns and practices of not adhering to their affirmative duties under the California Constitution, Water Code, and Public Trust Doctrine to ensure that new water, including recycled water, is used and managed reasonably, and when feasible, to protect and restore California’s flow deprived rivers and streams.
