More on Healdsburg Ponds Case

This Clean Water Act litigation was brought by Jack Silver and Northern California River Watch. I was one of the expert witnesses on this case. We won the case in 9th District, and on appeal. I have asked Jack whether he believes Healdsburg will appeal our victory to the US Supreme Court. I think this case will be published and will become the law of the land. If Healdsburg appeals again they will have wasted yet more hundreds of thousands of dollars of their rate payers money. Those ratepayers should be very angry at how their officials have conducted this case and should toss out their elected officials for squandering so much money, all in order to avoid obtaining an NPDES permit, and bringing their wastewater discharge into compliance with the Clean Water Act.
