Re "Should California make changes to landmark 1970 law?" (Forum, Jan. 13): We need CEQA to protect water, air, and soil.
If you need evidence of what long term damage can be wrought by lack of regulation, please go to the website of the San Francisco Estuary Institute at http://www.sfei.org and review their data on pollutants and contaminants of concern.
If you need more evidence, please review the documents on the Superfund sites in Region 9, online at http://www.epa.gov/region9/superfund/superfundsites.html .
Our beloved state is still on the fragile road to recovery from the toxic years before CEQA was implemented.
