SAN RAFAEL, Calif. —
A state appeals court has okayed an environmental study of a Marin County water district's proposed desalination project.
The Marin Independent Journal reported on Wednesday that the 1st District Court of Appeal in San Francisco reversed a lower court decision that invalidated the study.
Marin County Judge Lynn Duryee said in August 2011 that the environmental review for the $115 million plant was flawed in part because it failed to fully assess the project's impact on marine life.
Marin Municipal Water District officials disputed that and said a more comprehensive review would be conducted once the project moved forward.
The project has been shelved for now.
But North Coast Rivers Alliance President Frank Egger, whose group was among the plaintiffs, said it will have to look into whether to appeal.
