City sues Riverside County over quarry study
Jul, 30 2012
(Riverside, California) -- The city of Temecula has filed a lawsuit alleging that Riverside County failed to comply with state law when supervisors approved an environmental report for a quarry project.
The Press-Enterprise reports that the lawsuit filed on Thursday asks the court to void the report. The suit claims the report was based on flawed assumptions and studies.
Riverside County spokesman Ray Smith declined to comment on the lawsuit.
Earlier this year, county supervisors denied Granite Construction's proposal to build a quarry on a mountain overlooking Temecula but approved the project's environmental report.
Residents of Temecula, a university and an Indian tribe are opposed to the project.
The company this week submitted a new application for a smaller quarry.
