Judge Wants EPA to Enforce Everglades Pollution Rules
A Miami federal judge has cleared the way for the federal government to do something he contends the state has failed to do for decades; enforce water pollution standards tough enough to protect the Everglades.

U.S. District Judge Alan Gold frustrated by the repeated delays and “disingenuous” legal maneuvers by state lawmakers and agencies; will strip authority from the state to issue critical pollution discharge permits for the state’s $1.2 billion network of nutrient-scrubbing marshes and give it to the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency.

The EPA plan is calling for a 42,000 acre, $1.5 billion expansion of the state’s existing network of reservoirs and pollution treatment marshes, which are designed to absorb phosphorous that runs from sugar farms, cattle pastures, and suburban lawns.
