Butte County Names Names in 'pot grading' lawsuit

Jul 31, 2013 5:31 PM

The Butte County Board of Supervisors this week announced they are suing a group of property owners who performed illegal grading operations on their land for pot grows.

They say illegal grading has damaged the natural beauty of the landscape and threatens to cause all kinds of problems including erosion and runoff in nearby rivers and creeks. The lawsuits order property owners to immediately remove all plants, structures, and equipment from the grading sites and restore the land to pre-grading status. If they don't, the county will do the work and send the property owners the bill.

The following are addresses and owner's names of the properties being targeted in this new legal effort:
