The group filed a federal lawsuit against the Forest Service claiming they did not adequately look at the project's impact on fish and wetlands.

 

A judge issued an injunction to stop the project and the city and Forest Service decided to come up with a new plan.

 

Paul Dewey, the Director of Central Oregon Landwatch says the new plan doesn't differ much from the past one.

 

"Yeah, it really has the same problems as the last one.  We don't really see a basis on which the court would issue any other decision that would it did the last time."

 

A judge stopped the project last fall and the city decided rather than waiting until the judge ruled on the lawsuit -- they would submit another plan for the water project.

 

The Forest Service has found in its new analysis the environmental impact would be minimal.
