We successfully resolved enforcement actions taken by the local conservation commission as well as DEP under the Wetlands Protection Act and Chapter 91 against our client cottage owner in Southeastern Massachusetts for a pier allegedly constructed larger than permitted.

We negotiated validation of the pier construction and associated grading, mitigation and restoration of the affected area, reduction in the proposed monetary penalties, and modifications to make the structure stronger to face coastal storms. The matter was successfully resolved.
