Joplin Independent:Coalition sues EPA over failure to protect waters

Posted by Trish Riley, August 5, 2010

The Missouri Coalition for the Environment (MCE) filed a federal lawsuit today (Aug. 4, 2010) in the U.S. District Court for the Western District of Missouri aimed at cleaning up Missouri’s waters. The lawsuit charges that the U. S. Environmental Protection Agency has failed the citizens of Missouri because the vast majority of waters in the state have been illegally exempted from clean water laws that aim to keep water safe and healthy for people, fish, and livestock.
