"Judge Orders Florida Water Pollution Limits"

"A Southwest Florida conservation official is calling a federal judge's ruling on clean water limits a total victory for the environment. U.S. District Judge Robert Hinkle's ruling in Tallahassee on Saturday ended years of delays in setting and enforcing specific limits on sewage, manure and fertilizer contamination in Florida waters."

"The rules must take effect March 6, Hinkle ruled.

'It was a victory on everything we wanted, except for a few technical details,' said Andrew McElwaine, president and CEO of the Conservancy of Southwest Florida in Naples, one of several plaintiffs in the lawsuit. "
