The Forest Service issued a special permit for the project this week, but already Paul Dewey with "Landwatch" has notified the city they plan to file another lawsuit.
Councilor Mark Capell expected this.
"They're goal is just to delay this as long as possible. they want to delay it until the next city council election and get more people on the council against the water project to slow everything down."
Capell says as long as they get the pipeline in by next spring or summer, they will be on schedule to coordinate work with Skyliners Road, so it won't be torn up twice.
He says the city anticipated future lawsuits and were careful about documenting everything about the potential environmental impact of the project.
