Judge rules against Los Osos residents protesting order on septic tanks

A Superior Court judge has ruled against Los Osos residents who accused the Central Coast Regional Water Quality Control Board of acting illegally when it ordered them to stop polluting the community water supply with septic tank runoff.

Judge Charles Crandall wrote of the Los Osos residents who protested the so-called “cease and desist orders,” or CDOs, that “the evidence belies their legal claims, which the court finds exaggerated."
