Final I-69 Silt and Sedimentation Complaint Letter

In my posting Highlights From Monroe County Council Meeting 2014-02-11 I mentioned that during public comment:

“Scott Wells presented a letter of complaint to four federal agencies (EPA, US Fish and Wildlife Service, Federal Highway Administration, and the US Army Corps of Engineers) that was agreed upon by the Plan Commission asking these federal agencies to address the issues of ongoing siltation and sedimentation of Monroe County waterways during the I-69 corridor construction (Section 4).”

The final draft of this letter was signed by all members of the Monroe County Plan Commission, the Monroe County Commissioners, the Monroe County Drainage Board, the Monroe County Stormwater Management Board, the Monroe County Board of Health, the Monroe County Environmental Quality and Sustainability Commission, and 6 out of 7 members of the County Council.

The letter was sent in April to:

  • Indiana Governor Mike Pence
  • United States Environmental Protection Agency
  • Federal Highway Administration
  • INDOT: I-69 Section 4 Office
  • Indiana Department of Environmental Management
  • Indiana Department of Natural Resources – Division of Water
  • U.S. Fish & Wildlife Service
  • U.S. Army Corps of Engineers
