Breaking news - San Jose Water Company logging plan rejected!

We just heard from Assemblyman Ira Ruskin's office that the proposal to log the redwood trees in the watershed supplying much of Santa Clara County with water has been rejected. San Jose Water Company applied for a special "NTMP" permit that allows logging in perpetuity, but had to meet several conditions that they didn't meet.

The Committee for Green Foothills has opposed this project from the beginning. We're still waiting on details, and it may well come back from the dead, but still it's excellent news!
