"News" piece on possible permit violations in the Allagash Wilderness Waterway. According to Jay Clement of the Maine office of the Army Corps of Engineers in Winthrop, which is investigating the allegations, some of the work was done before the Corps had legal jurisdiction or the waterway came under federal designation as wild, making prosecution doubtful. The charges were made by Allagash Partners, a new wilderness advocacy group. On other fronts, the Bureau of Parks and Lands (BPL) is not pursuing a redesignation of the waterway to scenic or recreational under the Wild and Scenic Act. And Rep. Linda McKee, D-Wayne, has prepared two Allagash bills that would establish a policymaking Allagash River Authority, and would take the Allagash out of the state park system and give it a special status, requiring BPL to report to lawmakers annually on the status of the waterway.
