Document Description
The Gregory Canyon Landfill project includes the construction and operation of a new Class III municipal solid waste landfill. A legal challenge to the certified EIR was filed. The court ruled that the 2003 EIR was defective in three respects: (1) failure to consider the 2003 Traffic Needs Assessment of Tribal Development Projects in the San Diego Region; (2) water supply; and (3) biological mitigations as they related to Proposition C. On January 20, 2006, the court issued a Peremptory Writ of Mandate directing the Director of DEH to rescind his prior action certifying the EIR. Limited portions of the 2003 EIR have been revised to address the deficiencies noted by the court, to update the project description and to analyze and evaluate the project based on several new studies that have been completed.
