Metropolitan Water District Sued

The Metropolitan Water District has been sued over the multi million-dollar purchase of five islands in the Sacramento River Delta.

They are demanding an environmental review of the islands be made before the water district is allowed to complete their purchase.  Tom Perumean, KABC NEWS.
