Pinon Canyon: Judge Rules Army Failed To "Adequately Assess Environmental Impacts"

Posted: Updated:

DENVER (AP) - A federal judge has thrown out an environmental review of the Army's plan to increase operations at a training site in southeast Colorado.

U.S. District Judge Richard Matsch in Denver issued a ruling Tuesday overturning a 2007 environmental analysis of stepping up training at its Piñon Canyon Maneuver Site. The ruling says the Army didn't adequately assess the environmental impacts of the increased intensity and duration of training.
