Boundary Waters (02/23/2006)
increased motor boat quotas thrown out by court

The United States Court of Appeals for the Eighth Circuit today issued an opinion finding the United States Forest Service's recalculation of motor boat quotas on three chains of lakes and towboat quotas were arbitrary and capricious, not supported by the record, and were therefore not consistent with the Boundary Waters Canoe Area Wilderness (BWCAW) Act of 1978. The Forest Service is ordered to recalculate those quotas in compliance with the BWCAW Act of 1978 and with the Court's Opinion.

The Court's Opinion shows there is no record of motor boat use to justify the excessive increase of quotas by the Forest Service. It represents a victory for the wilderness and for the principles underlying the BWCAW Act of 1978 which is to guide the Forest Service in issuing motor boat permits.
