3/4/2004 Judge Sets Mandatory Settlement Conference Over Recent LORP Settlement Non-compliance
As per the Feb. 10, 2004 LORP Stipulation and Order (S&O), LADWP and Inyo County were to have reached agreement by Feb. 17, 2004 on workplans for Yellow-billed Cuckoo habitats (Baker Ck. and Hogback Ck.) and for the use of 1600AF of "Additional Mitigation" water. The two parties did not reach agreement by Feb. 17, 2004.

As a result of a Sierra Club request, the Inyo Superior Court has set a Mandatory Settlement Conference for March 16, 2004 as called for in the S & O. The Court will attempt to help Inyo County and LADWP reach agreement on the workplans.
