EPISODE DESCRIPTION

On July 18th I spoke with Attorney Kim Ervin Tucker. She is representing the Maine Lobstering Union and several other organizations battling a proposal by the US Army Corps of Engineers to dredge nearly a million cubic yards of polluted sediments from shoal areas in the approaches to Searsport Harbor, then dumping them into waters between Belfast, Islesboro and Northport

Our 26 minute interview follows a July 17th meeting of the Maine Board of Environmental Protection (BEP) which heard requests by attorneys representing fishing and conservation interests calling on the BEP to assume jurisdiction over the dredge review process. The board declined for reasons that Attorney Tucker outlines as the results of a successful effort by the Lepage administration to defang the Board of Environmental Protection, including chairing it with the former legislator who stage managed a bill through the Maine Legislature that fatally weakened its ability to respond to citizen requests!
