Army Corps Permit for Sisk Wind Power Project Affirmed in Federal Court 

A lawsuit challenging the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers’ issuance of a Clean Water Act Section 404 permit to TransCanada’s Sisk Mountain wind power project was denied today in U.S. District Court in Maine.  Judge George Singal affirmed the magistrate judge’s recommended decision in its entirety, denying project opponents’ claims based on the Migratory Bird Treaty Act and the Bald and Golden Eagle Protection Act.

This decision is is the latest in a string of federal court decisions rejecting similar claims raised by wind power opponents.

TransCanada is represented in the Sisk litigation by Verrill Dana attorneys Juliet Browne and Gordon Smith.
