Suit over Pardee Reservoir expansion goes to court

“The fight over an East Bay water utility’s bid to expand a picturesque reservoir and flood up to 1,200 acres in the Sierra Nevada foothills will head into a Sacramento courtroom this week.

“While the East Bay Municipal Utility District will argue that a bigger reservoir could be an important source for slaking the thirst of hundreds of thousands of new customers in coming decades, a coalition of conservation and fishing groups says the project is an environmental disaster in the making.

“In approving a 30-year plan to provide water for large swaths of Alameda and Contra Costa counties in 2009, EBMUD reversed its previous position on the Pardee Reservoir, located on the Amador-Calaveras line, according to agency opponents.”
