Davis|Kuelthau environmental attorney Ted A. Warpinski was quoted in the Peshtigo Times article, Aquila, Back Forty Mine Foes Comment On Permit Decision, for his representation of the Coalition to SAVE the Menominee River, Inc. This Menominee, Michigan based non-profit organization works to inform and educate the community on water quality testing, property value preservation and wildlife protection through events and fundraising activities.
In response to Judge Daniel Pulter’s decision to deny the prior issuance of a Wetlands Permit, Ted stated, “Judge Pulter issued a thorough and thoughtful decision recognizing the many flaws with Aquila’s wetlands permit application and rejecting the attempt by EGLE to correct those flaws with improper permit conditions. We are grateful for the cooperative efforts of the Earthjustice attorneys representing the Menominee Tribe as well as the diligent efforts of Mr. Boerner who joined us in challenging this wetland permit. We encourage Aquila to accept that this is simply not a suitable location for a mining operation.”

From the early years of Superfund litigation on sites like the Fadrowski Drum Disposal Site in Franklin, Wisconsin and the Moss-American Site in Milwaukee, Ted is immersed in both the legal and technical aspects of environmental law.
