Pozsgai's Ordered to Restore Illegally Filled Wetlands

DRN, et al. v. Pozsgai (Eastern District of PA, Civ. No. 88-6545): Delaware Riverkeeper Network intervened in a Department of Justice EPA action to enforce a Court Order to protect wetlands in lower Bucks County. In a ruling issued March 8, 2007, the United States District Court for the Eastern District of Pennsylvania held in contempt the defendants John and Gisella Pozsgai for illegally filling the wetlands without a permit and for defying, for 17 years, the Court's order to restore the wetlands. The Pozsgai's were ordered to restore the wetlands within a 90day period - they have appealed and the case continues
