Lead counsel on all aspects of the successful federal, state and local environmental and land use permitting of this 68-acre landfill, which was the subject of a contested adjudicatory hearing before Maine's Board of Environmental Protection. Also successfully defended appeals of the original decision in Maine courts. Once constructed, this landfill was transferred into the ownership of the State of Maine, and I subsequently represented the State-designated private operator in licensing a seven million cubic yard disposal capacity vertical increase, again after a contested hearing process. I also have successfully defended that decision on appeal to Maine Superior Court.
Between 2015 and 2017, I represented the private operator of the Juniper Ridge Landfill in the successful federal, state and local permitting of a 9.35 million cubic yard horizontal expansion of the facility. The permits were obtained after contested adjudicatory proceedings at the State and local levels.
