The megadredge plan for Searsport Harbor has been withdrawn!
The Army Corps of Engineers sent this letter today to Maine DEP
The terse letter from Corps permit reviewer Barbara Blumeris's letter to Jim Beyer of Maine DEP says it all:
Mr. Jim Beyer, Regional Licensing Compliance Manager
Bureau of Land Quality, Maine Department
