Suquamish Tribe files suit over Navy's new wharf at Bangor By Christopher Dunagan Kitsap Sun (WA) August 27, 2012BANGOR - In a case involving tribal rivalries, the Suquamish Tribe has filed a lawsuit against the Navy and other federal agencies over their approval of a new explosives handling wharf at the Navy's Bangor facility.
Suquamish Tribal Chairman Leonard Forsman said the lawsuit was necessary to protect the tribe's treaty rights in Hood Canal, where the Navy plans to build a $715 million explosives handling wharf. Construction is scheduled to begin this fall.
The lawsuit seeks to halt construction of the wharf and obtain court recognition that federal agencies have violated the tribe's treaty rights.
The Suquamish Tribe was left out of mitigation agreements with four other tribes that have uncontested treaty rights on Hood Canal. Under those agreements, the Navy will pay nearly $9 million to mitigate the loss of treaty resources.
