The decision by the state's 3rd District Court of Appeal threatened to delay Gov. Jerry Brown's project, saying that such an intrusion on private property without permission violates the California Constitution. The multi-billion-dollar proposal would send fresh water around the Sacramento-San Joaquin Delta to Central and Southern California.

Nancy Vogel of the state's Department of Water Resources said Friday that officials anticipated such obstacles and won't be delayed.

Some 150 property owners sued the state. The Sacramento Bee reports that state officials will likely ask the California Supreme Court to review the ruling.
