Environmental – Administrative – Licenses & Permits — Wildlife Refuge – Clean Water Act (access required)

Friends of Back Bay v. U.S. Army Corps of Engineers The “Friends of Back Bay” win their challenge to a Clean Water permit issued by the Army Corps of Engineers to a developer who wants to build a mooring facility and concrete boat ramp about 3,000 feet from the Back Bay National Wildlife Refuge in Virginia Beach; the 4th Circuit vacates a decision upholding the permit, as the Corps relied on voluntary compliance with a “secret” no-wake zone to protect the Refuge from the negative effect of adding 64 boat slips to the existing 12 in the area.
