EPA Halts Proposed Fishing Park Near Logan
The Environmental Protection Agency says a project to build a fishing park with handicapped access near the town of Logan in western Montana doesn’t have the necessary permits from the Army Corps of Engineers.
EPA Enforcement Agent Kenneth Champagne says the town is susceptible to flooding in that area, and agencies weren’t able to consider potential problems with putting the park at the river.
Bud Lilly has been working with the American Legion and Urbani Fisheries to build the park.
He tells KECI-TV that there might have been some miscommunication but he’s confident the park can safely move forward.
The EPA says it supports projects like Lilly’s but the projects still need to go through the appropriate process.
