Enviro Groups File Notice of Intent to Challenge the Recent NWP Modifications
The Center for Biological Diversity and several other environmental Groups have filed an ESA 60-day notice of intent to sue the Corps over the recent modifications to the NWPs. See notice attached below. For more on the NWP modifications, see my Aug. 4, Aug. 6, Sept. 4, Nov. 19 and Jan. 10 blogposts. These premature permit mods (they were done two years before the permits expired - - the federal government never modifies permit ahead of schedule) were already under review by the new administration. This soon-to-be lawsuit will likely be the excuse the new administration needs to take a voluntary remand of the permits. Stay tuned.
