PLF fights the EPA to protect a couple’s dream

November 22, 2011 I By PACIFIC LEGAL FOUNDATION

Mike and Chantell Sackett are being treated as criminals by EPA regulators who contend their vacant lot in northern Idaho is a “jurisdictional wetland,” and the gravel fill they placed on the lot to prepare for construction of a new home is a violation of the Clean Water Act. There’s no standing water on the property, or anything that resembles a wetland. Given no choice by the EPA or lower courts to directly appeal the wetland determination, the Sacketts, represented by PLF attorneys, are fighting back. On January 9, 2012, their lawsuit will be heard in the United States Supreme Court.
