Developer Makar Properties will be allowed to build housing on nine acres next to a South Orange County Wastewater Authority's sewage treatment plant in Dana Point, per a Court of Appeals judgment handed down last month. SOCWA, concerned that it would have to deal with complaints in the future, wanted the project to go through the environmental impact report process, and "to either notify the development's future residents of the potential exposure to odors or pay $4.6 million to help SOCWA cover up some of the smell by capping open aeration tanks." Under the court ruling, the developer won't have to do any of that. [OCR]
