We're Back in Court Tuesday — Protecting Hahamongna

Tues., Dec. 5th, 1:30 pm
Superior Court,
111 N Hill St #834
Los Angeles
Judge James Chalfant presiding

Attorney Mitchell Tsai

Attorney Christiana Caro

We were pleased with the LA County Board of Supervisors' action on November 7th to significantly reduce the size of the Flood Control District's plan to remove sediment from behind Devil's Gate Dam in Hahamongna Watershed Park. We are grateful to Supervisor Kathryn Barger for her leadership.

But there are still major problems with the Flood Control District's program, and we're still fighting to save Hahamongna:

  • dangerous air pollution
  • too many trucks per day
  • large permanent devastation zone
  • inadequate habitat mitigation
  • threats to wildlife and recreation

We challenged these and other issues in the public comments to the revisions to the Flood Control District's Environmental Impact Report. There was a tremendous outpouring of public concern. Of 100 comments, only one supported the Flood Control District's program. But the Flood Control District didn't listen.

Now that the County Supervisors have certified the Flood Control District's revised program, Judge James Chalfant will consider whether the revisions satisfy his court order that the Big Dig program must fully comply with the California Environmental Quality Act.

Please join us if you can Tuesday. We think you'll be impressed by the stellar job our attorneys are doing and the overwhelming public support for saving Hahamongna!

Thank you for your concern and support.
