Fighting for Clean Water Act sanity in Virginia

April 25, 2011 I By PACIFIC LEGAL FOUNDATION

Author:  Damien M. Schiff

Earlier this month, PLF attorneys filed an appeal in the Fourth Circuit Court of Appeals in a case testing the jurisdictional limits of the EPA to regulate wetlands under the Clean Water Act.  The case, Smith Farm Enterprises v. EPA, arises out of an administrative penalty action brought by EPA against a family-owned farm in the Chesapeake tidewater area of Virginia.  For a great summary of the Smith Farm story and the family's poor treatment at the hands of federal bureaucrats, check out PLF's press release.
