The largest residential development in the history of Los Angeles County has hit another legal snag over water supply that could further delay construction. The state Supreme Court refused to interfere with a lower court decision that set aside the transfer of 41,000 acre-feet of water each year from the Kern County Water Agency to the Castaic Lake Water Agency, which would supply a portion of water to Newhall Ranch, a proposed 21,600-home subdivision in the Santa Clarita Valley. A Superior Court ruling found that the Castaic Lake Water Agency's environmental report was inadequate and needed to be revised, agency spokeswoman Mary Lou Cotton said.

Once again those concerned about assuring adequate water supply before development is approved are painted as slow-growth advocates by the development community ("Water Report Favors Growth," Feb. 16). One large developer in particular, Newhall Land & Farming Co., has chanted this mantra ceaselessly to try to deflect criticism over lack of a firm water supply for its 21,600-unit Newhall Ranch proposal. We cannot solve our water problems by burying our heads in the sand and pretending we have an abundance of supply.

A state appellate court on Thursday threw out an environmental impact report that proposed importing Kern County water for future subdivisions in the Santa Clarita Valley, including the 21,000-home Newhall Ranch project. Opponents of Newhall Ranch said the ruling is a setback for the project. But an attorney for the water-importing agency downplayed the order, saying the subdivision would use little of the water.

Armed with a foot-thick stack of reports, the firm planning the largest housing development in Los Angeles County history assured officials one more time Wednesday that they have enough water to supply the new suburb. The 21,600-home Newhall Ranch project was temporarily blocked last June by a judge who demanded more proof that there is enough water to support the new community in the Santa Clarita Valley, especially during dry years. After an eight-month analysis, Newhall Land and Farming Co.

Two lawsuits have been filed against four Santa Clarita Valley water agencies alleging they have overstated water supplies and understated demand from the 21,600-unit Newhall Ranch and other projects, officials said Tuesday.
