Notice of Intent to sue under the Clean Water Act

On February 5, 2013 the groups issued a Notice of Intent to sue under the Clean Water Act to the Corps. In response to that letter, the Corp finally agreed to revoke the permit for the Monroe Bypass, almost a year after the Fourth Circuit's ruling. Other agencies including the US Fish and Wildlife Service, and the Department of Environment and Natural Resources have also withdrawn their approvals for the project. NCDOT will need to re-apply for all these approvals, and complete its environmental review under the National Environmental Policy Act before taking any further steps.
