BRAWLEY — County Air Pollution Control Officer Stephen L. Birdsall has asked the City Council here to join in litigation against the environmental impact report done for the North Baja Pipeline project under the California Environmental Quality Act.
The council will vote whether to join in the litigation during a meeting Tuesday night. The meeting starts at 7 p.m.
In a letter to Brawley City Manager Jerry Santillan, Birdsall states, "The county believes that the evaluation of the air-quality impacts tied to the two power plants being built in Mexico are inadequate and severely understate these impacts.
"As you know, InterGen still intends on operating two units without the necessary control devices to reduce nitrous oxides and carbon monoxide," the letter states.
