Preserve Our Islands has just learned that WE HAVE WON the Federal Court case against the Army Corps of Engineers!
Federal Agencies were in violation of the Endangered Species Act and the National Environmental Policy Act.
The permits have been remanded back to the Federal Agencies who will now be required to perform a FULL EIS as well as a lengthy and detailed formal consultation done by actual biologists, on the purposed projects impacts to the endangered Orcas and Chinook.
And, most significantly no final permit decision and NO WORK can be performed until these reviews are performed.
Tears of joy!
From the Seattle Times this morning!
