Cite as: Sanders v. Manager, Regional Support, Parkland Region, Alberta Environment, re: Sunset Harbour Developments Ltd.
 On April 19, 2000, the Manager, Regional Support, Parkland Region, Alberta Environment (Department) issued Approval No. 00073615-00-00, under the Water Act to Sunset Harbour Developments Ltd. (Approval Holder). The Approval authorizes the Approval Holder to construct a marina and stormwater management works at Pigeon Lake in the SW 12-47-02-W5 subject to certain conditions.
 On May 13, 2000, the Environmental Appeal Board (Board) received a letter dated May 13, 2000, from Mr. John Sanders (Appellant), appealing the Approval.
 On May 16, 2000, the Board acknowledged receipt of the Appellant's letter of May 13, 2000. As the Appellant's letter did not include specific information required under the Environmental Appeal Board Regulation(2), section 5(1)(3), the Board requested that the Appellant clarify the purpose of his letter and provide further information, in order for the Board to proceed further with the request for an appeal.
 The Board received a fax dated June 16, 2000 from Mr. Sanders stating the following:
"This is to advise you that I will not be pursuing an independent appeal in the matter of the Sunset Harbour Project at Pigeon Lake. Rather, I will be contributing to the appeal presentations of other persons who are continuing with their appeals."
 On June 16, 2000, the Board acknowledged Mr. Sanders fax of June 16, 2000 and advised him as follows:
"The Board wishes to confirm that as you have withdrawn your independent appeal, you no longer have standing in this matter as an Appellant. Therefore, should you wish to make any further contribution to these appeals, the Appellant who you will be speaking on behalf of must advise the Board".
 Pursuant to section 87(7) of the Environmental Protection and Enhancement Act, and based on Mr. John Sander's fax of June 16, 2000, the Board hereby discontinues its proceedings in Appeal No. 00-031 and will be closing its file.
Dated July 6, 2000 at Edmonton, Alberta.
