PAC. LUMBER CO. v. CALIFORNIA STATE WATER RES. CONTROL BD., A102399
Under the Forest Practice Act, the Department of Forestry's exclusive jurisdiction over timber harvesting does not give it exclusive jurisdiction over the effects of that harvesting. Instead, other agencies may regulate the impacts of logging to the extent those impacts implicate the substantive statutes they are charged with enforcing.
