"New EPA Standard Triggers Florida Lawsuits"

"The lawsuits being filed against the Environmental Protection Agency are piling up, and more are likely to come following the agency’s decision to set nutrient pollution limits for Florida’s waters.

The latest suit was filed in federal court on Pensacola by five northwest Florida utilities, each of which claims it would have to overhaul its treatment plants to meet the new standards. Their plants, they argue, already meet a high standard for treatment."
