"The Army Corps of Engineers and environmental groups announced last week that they had settled a lawsuit challenging several Loudoun County projects, but they disagree sharply about the agreement's effect on future development in Virginia. In a lawsuit filed in January 2001, the Forest Conservation Council and Friends of the Earth said the Corps failed to perform required environmental studies before allowing WorldCom Inc. and other companies in Loudoun and Prince William counties to build on wetlands."
