Vineyard Area Citizens for Responsible Growth v. City of Rancho Cordova

(2007) 40 Cal.4th 412

The Supreme Court reversed the judgment of the Court of Appeal and found that the environmental impact report (EIR) prepared for the community and specific plans for a large mixed-use development failed to adequately identify and evaluate future water sources for the development. The Court also found that potential impacts on migratory salmon in a particular river, disclosed in the final EIR, should instead have been incorporated in a revised draft EIR and recirculated for public comment.
