Groups sue to block water deal 

A couple days before Christmas, Westlands Water District issued a notice
that declared the renewal of six water export contracts valid and harmless
to the Sacramento San Joaquin Delta and environment. Westlands had announced
that the renewal of more than a million acre-feet of Northern California
water export wouldn't require any environmental disclosure of impacts. 

"These massive commitments of water to less than 600 corporate agricultural
users are a direct threat to the Delta and to the Trinity River, which is
the source of the water," said Frank Egger, president of the North Coast
Rivers Alliance. 

The North Coast Rivers Alliance and other groups filed suit in Fresno
Superior Court demanding full disclosure of impacts of the renewals.
