Everglades Cleanup At Stake In Court Case
"Wednesday, the US Supreme Court will be asked to decide whether the agency operating the S-9 pumps may be held responsible under the federal Clean Water Act for the polluted water it transports from the urban flood-control system on the east side of the levee into the environmentally sensitive Everglades on the west. The case has major implications for the $8 billion Everglades restoration project, the largest environmental cleanup ever attempted. In addition, it could dramatically increase regulations applied to the movement of water nationwide, particularly in the water-scarce Western states."
