A controversial expansion to Pardee Reservoir in northern Calaveras County is no longer on the table after East Bay Municipal Utility District directors voted last week to drop the project from a long-term water supply plan.

The vote Tuesday represents a major victory for environmental groups that sued three years ago to stop the expansion. The Foothill Conservancy, California Sportfishing Protection Alliance and Friends of the River prevailed in a Sacramento County court. EBMUD later released a revised environmental impact report on the plan that projects how the utility will meet its customers’ water demands through 2040.
