MOSCOW, Idaho (AP) -- A northern Idaho judge has agreed to issue an injunction to force a mobile home park owner to overhaul the park's water and waste system to make it safe for residents.

But 2nd District Judge John Stegner on Tuesday also says he's not sure how long it will take to issue the order against Syringa Mobile Home Park owner Magar E. Magar because he wants to make sure it will be effective.
 
Reports show that a team of third-year law students from the University of Idaho Legal Aid Clinic representing residents sought the injunction.
 
On another front, the Idaho Department of Environmental Quality in February filed a lawsuit against Magar contending the mobile home park is violating wastewater and drinking water requirements.  
 
That lawsuit is pending in 2nd District Court.
