Environment Groups Sue for Grazing Along River

The State | IN BRIEF / SAN FRANCISCO

December 12, 2001|From Times Wire Reports

Environmental groups sued the U.S. Forest Service and U.S. Department of Agriculture Secretary Anne Veneman over cattle grazing along the North Fork Eel River in Northern California.

The Center for Biological Diversity and the Environmental Protection Information Center filed the suit Monday in federal court to stop cattle grazing in the river corridor.

The groups contend that cows cross the river, causing algae blooms and impairing water quality and fish habitat. The North Fork Eel River was designated a federal wild and scenic river in 1981.
