ANCHORAGE - The Environmental Protection Agency says it has ordered a man living near Ninilchik to restore his beach.
The federal agency issued a compliance order to Charles Brown for his property in the Hawk's Beach Subdivision.
Brown failed to obtain a permit before using heavy equipment to deposit boulders and other fill materials below the high tide line, according to the agency.
The order requires Brown to restore the site to its original condition or to the maximum extent possible.
The agency says restoration and mitigation must be completed no later than June 15 or Brown could face fines as high as $32,500 per day.
