  1. Mary Charlotte Randall says

    The APA does not investigate VIOLATIONS unless it is for their favor. My road PUMPKIN HOLLOW ROAD IN WELLS NY is illegally having flooding issues, and it involves my land also 193 SLLC BMM–I want to plant seedlings, but my land is being flooded illegally by a 4 ft culvert put in by the town of WELLS, and well over a year I have complained about it. 214 above me is sitting on SOLID ROCK FORMATIONS OF THE ADIRONDACKS. The APA denied a permit for the previous owner, but this owner built without a permit, and is the main reason the town of WELLS put in the 4 ft culvert. I lost everything in a fire so getting a lawyer has to be either PRO-BONO, or CONTINGENCY—maybe I can get support via ADIRONDACK EXPLORER and Agencies to PROTECT THE ADIRONDACKS.
