EPA Wins Federal Court Challenge to Amended 'Waters of the United States' Rule

Environmental Law Chair Jeff Porter spoke with the National Law Journal about the Environmental Protection Agency’s recent win, in which a federal district court rejected a challenge to the agency’s narrowed ‘waters of the United States’ definition.

Jeff commented on the ongoing challenges related to the rule, stating, “The only thing that can change this cycle of agency action, litigation, judicial decision, agency action is if Congress reauthorizes the Clean Water Act.”
