Case Summary Citation

Environmental Integrity Project v. McCarthy, No. 13-1306 (RDM), ___ F. Supp. 3d ___, 2015 U.S. Dist. LEXIS 131653, 2015 WL 5730427 (D.D.C. Sept. 29, 2015)


In addition to stocking grocery stores and restaurants with beef, chicken and milk, CAFOs generate another product—manure. The EPA’s decision to withdraw a proposed rule compelling CAFOs to provide information to aid the agency in regulating their discharge of pollutants into the waters of the United States was upheld by the United States District Court for the District of Columbia. The court concluded that the EPA’s decision was “adequately explained” and “coherent,” supported by the administrative record, and did not conflict with existing law.
