Peace group tries to stop new Navy wharf at Bangor

BREMERTON -- A peace group and a tribe who oppose the Navy's plan to build a new explosives wharf at the Bangor submarine base are asking a court to prevent construction until their lawsuits are resolved.
Construction on the $715 million project could begin within a few weeks in the Hood Canal near Silverdale unless a federal judge in Tacoma issues a preliminary injunction.
The Kitsap Sun reports lawsuits against the Navy have been filed by the anti-nuclear war group Ground Zero for Nonviolent Action and by the Suquamish Tribe. Ground Zero says the Navy has ignored environmental laws. The tribe claims treaty rights in Hood Canal. Both cases are under the jurisdiction of U.S. District Judge Ronald B. Leighton in Tacoma.
Navy officials say they don't comment on ongoing litigation.
