National Association of Home v. EPA

<> National Association of Home v. EPA – 5/15/15. In the U.S. Court of Appeals, D.C. Circuit, Case No. 13-5290. Home Builders challenged a preliminary, internal determination, made by U.S. EPA and the Army Corps of Engineers in 2008, that two stretches of the Santa Cruz River in southern Arizona are traditional navigable waters -- i.e.  "waters of the United States."
     The Appeals Court denied the Home Builders challenge and ruled, "We hold that Home Builders' case for standing, although since supplemented with new declarations from members adding factual detail to their assertions of injury, is materially unchanged and thus precluded by Home Builders I."
