My township has allowed a excavating company operate for several years now without the proper permits on private property the company has been removing dirt,fill, what ever you call it has been mining I guess they have removed so many trees and changed the way the water runs off the property now it all drains to the back of there gravel pit and into a wet land area I live kinda behind this place and there is not any immedate affect but I am sure that the compelet structure of the eviroment is going to be affected sooner or later this is a ruarl area and most of the township members have even used this company and it is located right on a main state road with in about a mile of the township hall every person in the township has to drive right by it to get to any town in the areathey are breaking every law you can think of can I sue the township for allowing this to go on.

John,

As the saying goes, you can sue a ham sandwich.


I would suggest that you start by reporting the issue to your township and see what relief that can bring. I would also suggest you start documenting the issue with photographs and a log of activity.

If in the future there are problems, you may have cause of action against the owner of the property for altering the storm water runoff. To determine if this is possible, you will need to consult with a local attorney.

John,

Sorry, but I don't see what your question has to do with HOAs. Perhaps you should consult an attorney or some environmental organization.
