OCV News -- Did They Know?
April 24, 2009

As we've told you, the Environmental Assessment issued by Olver, Inc. on behalf of Orange County completely overlooked a large wetland area (about 1500 feet long) right where the WTS would be sited.  Check out these articles recapping the BoCC Meeting on Tuesday, 4/21:

Did they know?
Some of our members are calling for a second opinion - some want more. Certainly given the hundreds of thousands of dollars that the county has paid Olver, we should expect more.
What do you think? Write to the commissioners and let them know!
