Opponents of a controversial project to expand Pardee Reservoir scored a court victory last week when a judge ruled that the plan neglected to account for the area's environmental and cultural resources.

East Bay Municipal Utility District's 2040 Water Supply Management Plan outlines how it will provide drinking water to its growing number of customers and prepare for prolonged droughts. Environmental groups opposed to aspects of the plan argue that it would destroy a scenic waterway, remove a vital bridge and eliminate an ancestral gathering place for the Miwok tribe. The environmental report, approved by EBMUD in 2009, was thrown out by Sacramento Superior Court Judge Timothy Frawley last week. Conservation groups who brought the case against EBMUD are celebrating the victory, but agree it's only a small part of a larger fight.
