Pollution Ruling Stands Regarding Chesapeake Bay
The Supreme Court won’t hear an appeal from farm groups challenging a federal plan that limits pollution in the Chesapeake Bay. A lower court ruling will stand that upheld the EPA’s restrictions on farm and construction runoff and wastewater treatment. The EPA says animal waste and fertilizer that flows from streams into the Chesapeake is the single largest source of bay pollution. Six states agreed to the pollution limits, including West Virginia.
