Description
Represents our landowner client in a multipronged endeavor to compel a state Department of Transportation to select an alternative route for a proposed federally funded highway. We apprised a federal agency of the potential for acid drainage that would flow from construction of the proposed road and harm an aquatic species protected by the Endangered Species Act. We assisted in the creation of a wildlife refuge on the property that has been recognized by the state Department of Natural Resources. We also worked to gain a ruling from the Keeper of the National Register of Historic Places that a historic manganese mining site in the path of the road is a historically significant landscape site worthy of protection. We successfully advocated that the  historic mine site is protected by federal law such that it cannot be disturbed by federally funded road construction.
