Add comment on:Salmon Protection Advocates File Lawsuit Against Flawed Marin County Streamside Ordinance
First Coho Salmon Spawners of the Season Spotted in Lagunitas Creek SAN RAFAEL, Calif.— Salmon protection groups filed a lawsuit today against Marin County for adopting a flawed “streamside conservation ordinance” that lacks science-based measures to protect salmon streams and habitat. The ordinance allows excessive development along streams that are critical to the survival of endangered coho salmon. The lawsuit asks that the ordinance be set aside until Marin County completes an environmental review, as required under the California Environmental Quality Act, and adopts and ordinance that adequately protects salmon habitat in Marin from creekside development.
