State forestry officials have shot down a water company's proposal to log a stretch of land in the Los Gatos Creek watershed.
 

Members of the Board of Forestry and Fire Protection voted unanimously Wednesday that San Jose Water Co. did not qualify for the open-ended logging permit it was seeking to log 1,000 acres near Highway 17 in Santa Clara County.


Without the permit, the water company would have to seek additional approval every time it wanted to begin logging operations on the land.


After the board made its decision, a representative for San Jose Water indicated that the company would not appeal the decision in court.
