Fireworks Halted in San Diego Because of Environmental Impact

A judge has ruled in San Diego that the City must undergo an environmental impact study before it allows fireworks to be discharged into the sky. Local leaders worry that this will prevent 4th of July fireworks from taking place.

See link to story.

The same may happen for the Del Mar fireworks display which has been threatened with a law suit if the organizers of its fireworks show does not agree to a plan for assessing the impact on water quality and wildlife, particularly in and around San Dieguito Lagoon.

Long Beach offers fireworks shows both down at the Queen Mary and at Veterans Stadium near Long Beach City College. No word as yet if the court ruling in San Diego will impact what happens in Long Beach this 4th of July.
