NH Attorney General: Lakes Region businessman violated wetlands laws

CONCORD - A judge ordered a New Hampshire businessman to restore wetlands and property he altered in Alton and Meredith in violation of wetlands laws, and pay a $20,000 civil penalty.

According to a press release issued by Attorney General Michael A. Delaney and Commissioner Thomas S. Burack of the state Department of Environmental Services, Belknap County Superior Court Judge James D. O'Neill III approved a settlement assessing a $20,000 civil penalty against Terence Graham, d/b/a Docks Unlimited of Meredith.

Authorities said Graham unlawfully altered wetlands on a property he owned in Meredith and began construction of an unauthorized breakwater along Lake Winnipesaukee in Alton.

The state sued Graham seeking restoration of the areas and civil penalties for both violations.

Judge O'Neill issued an order requiring Graham to restore both areas and approved a settlement between the parties that includes the $20,000 civil penalty.

However, the court is holding a hearing on March 30 concerning Graham's financial condition and his claimed inability to pay, according to authorities. The court may adjust payment of the civil penalties as it deems necessary, officials said in the press release.
