"News & Issues" piece on the only clear-cutting variance permit granted by the D
"News & Issues" piece on the only clear-cutting variance permit granted by the Department of Conservation following last January's ice storm, which has led to an official investigation of runoff that has polluted Green Lake in Otis. The variance was opposed by town officials in both Otis and Dedham. Jim Beyer of the Department of Environmental Protection, who is investigating, said that soil erosion on two logging roads was the source of the runoff, rather than the harvesting operation. Malcolm French, who owns the 3,140-acre property, has taken corrective measures, but Maine Forest Service director Chuck Gadzik said that may not be enough to prevent future problems.
