The Environmental Law & Policy Center Sues U.S. Environmental Protection Agency

. February 26, 2019.

The Environmental Law & Policy Center (ELPC) is suing the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency claiming of the latter’s approval of the Ohio EPA July 2018 report is inadequate. ELPC claims that the report reflects no effective solution to the phosphorus pollution in Lake Erie, and demands a plan to lessen the manure and fertilizer runoff that is responsible for the algae blooms. ELPC Executive Director Howard Learner stated that the Clean Water Act provides a pathway for this, “but U.S. EPA and Ohio EPA refuse to follow the law.”
