Village of Dot Lake sues Corps of Engineers 


Tribe Challenges Gold Mine’s Wetlands Permit

A new federal lawsuit was filed on Monday, July 1, by the Village of Dot Lake against the US Army Corps of Engineers.

The suit claims, among other things, that "The Corps failed to properly analyze the Project’s impacts on the Dot Lake’s resources and rights, the taking of fish and wildlife for subsistence uses, and the potential impact of the Project on the health, safety and welfare of tribal members at the mine site and in the path of the mine haul route. The Corps failed to undertake an adequate environmental review of the significant impacts posed by the Project as required by NEPA and the duties owed by the Corps to Dot Lake to protect tribal lands, assets, and resources."

The Village of Dot Lake is represented by Schwabe, Williamson & Wyatt PC of Seattle, WA.

The case is Village of Dot Lake v. US Army Corps of Engineers, D. Alaska, No. 3:24-cv-00137, Complaint 7/1/24.
