Court Blocks Enforcement of 2015 WOTUS Rule; Twenty-Four States Now Have Injunction

 

As the Trump Administration faces the long task to “repeal and replace” the 2015 Waters of the United States (WOTUS) rule, district courts have become the latest battleground.  On June 8, the U.S. District Court for the Southern District of Georgia issued an injunction on the 2015 rule, effectively shielding 11 states as their challenge of the rule moves through the court.  An existing injunction has been in place since 2015 covering 13 other states, bringing the total number of states protected by an injunction to twenty-four.  District courts are also handling requests for injunctions in Ohio and Texas. Meanwhile, environmental groups filed a lawsuit in the Northern District of California on June 13 (joining cases in New York and South Carolina) to challenge the administration’s recent rule to delay applicability of the 2015 rule by two years.  Although the 2015 rule currently remains delayed until 2020; these injunctions add a backstop should the cases against the delay rule prevail.

 

Capito, Manchin Announce Funding for wastewater infrastructure for the City of Petersburg and energy efficiency for small businesses

 

U.S. Senators Shelley Moore Capito (R-W.Va.) and Joe Manchin (D-W.Va.), members of the Senate Appropriations Committee, announced $738,638 for West Virginia from the U.S. Department of Agriculture’s Office of Rural Development. Funding will support improvements to the City of Petersburg’s wastewater treatment plant, allowing the city to better serve its more than 1,200 sewer customers, and energy efficiency projects for two West Virginian small businesses. “Our rural infrastructure is crucial to ensuring economic success and business development in our West Virginia communities. The impacts of these investments in the wastewater treatment plant in Petersburg, energy efficiency for the Family Adventure Resort in Harpers Ferry and solar panels for Thankful Valley Farms and Hatchery, LLC in Leon will be felt across our state. As a member of the Senate Appropriations Committee, I will continue advocating for investments in West Virginia’s rural infrastructure projects,” Senator Manchin said.
