Coalition Turns Up Heat as Army Corps Shirks Responsibility

TheĀ Coalition to Protect Puget Sound Habitat filed a Supplemental Complaint with the US District Court’s Western Division on June 5, 2017. The complaint addresses ongoing and expanding harm to the Puget Sound ecosystem caused by the rapid expansion of industrial agriculture. The Supplementary Complaint details the many levels of damage directly caused by industrial activity on Puget Sound, and makes explicit the responsibilities of the US Army Corps under the Clean Water Act and the National Environmental Policy Act to regulate aquaculture and protect Puget Sound. The Corps has completely abandoned these responsibilities and has maintained a blanket aquaculture permitting fast-track, in utter disregard of their fundamental duties, and of the law.
