United States First Circuit

ResetAA Font size: Print

City of Taunton, Mass. v. US Environmental Protection Agency, 16-2280

Affirmed a decision of the EPA's Environmental Appeals Board. Although a Massachusetts municipality objected to the imposition of a limit on the amount of nitrogen its wastewater treatment plant may discharge, the appeals court found no reason to second-guess the EPA's determination to impose the limit in administering the federal Clean Water Act, and rejected the municipality's procedural and substantive challenges.
