Fancy dancing at the Supreme Court
October 31, 2012 § 1 Comment
Once the election buzz has passed, angelenos can turn their attention to the Supreme Court for some creekfreaky argumentation. Commenters – can you offer up interpretations of what this decision will mean for clean water in LA if the County has its way? (feel free to also weigh in on how you feel about the County using its scarce resources for fighting interpretations of the clean water act when it’s under compliance deadlines. All the way up to the Supreme Court.)
The Clean Water Act was written and enacted back in the Stone Age of Environmentalism. Limiting it’s jurisdiction to “navigable waters” was really silly, considering the fact that all “unnavigatable waters” flow into “navigatable waters.”
In my opinion, it’s time for Los Angeles to stop squandering money on frivolous lawsuitas and instead clean up ALL of it’s waters.
