Florida Wildlife Federation, Inc., et al. v. EPA

<> Florida Wildlife Federation, Inc., et al. v. EPA - 7/7/15. In the U.S. Court of Appeals, Eleventh Circuit, Case No. 14-10987. An unpublished opinion involving a challenge by environmental groups over a court ordered modification of a consent decree with EPA regarding Florida's water regulations and standards under the Clean Water Act (CWA).
     In light of its approval of Florida's new CWA regulations, EPA asked the district court to modify the consent decree to relieve it of its obligation to regulate the waters covered by Florida's new CWA-compliant regulations. The Appeals Court ruled that the environmental groups were "wrong" in their challenge affirmed the district court's order modifying the consent decree.
