Citation: 14 ELR 20431
No. No. R-81-3051, (D. Md., 04/18/1984)

The court appoints a third-party trustee under FED. R. CIV. P. 70 to restore wetlands filled without a Federal Water Pollution Control Act § 404 permit and holds the owner of the wetlands, who has ignored a previous restoration order, in contempt. Should the trustee fail to restore the wetland, the court empowers the Corps of Engineers to do the job.
