Tehama-Colusa Canal Authority Appeals Area of Origin Decision

As we previously reported (here and here), the United States District Court for the Eastern District of California ruled in early August that water users in the Sacramento Valley have no preferential right to delivery of Central Valley Project water under California's so-called “area of origin” laws.  In a notice filed this morning, the Tehama-Colusa Canal Authority, plaintiff in Tehama-Colusa Canal Authority v. U.S. Dept. of the Interior, et al., Case No. 1:10-cv-0712 OWW DLB, appealed that ruling to the Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals.  We will continue to monitor further developments in the case and provide updates as warranted.

The underlying opinion from which the plaintiff has appealed may be found here.
