Case Summary Citation
Catskill Mountains Chapter of Trout Unlimited, Inc. v. United States Environmental Protection Agency, 846 F.3d 492 (2d Cir. 2017)
Trout Unlimited’s effort to overturn the EPA’s Water Transfers Rule was stifled by the Second Circuit. The court’s comprehensive Chevron analysis determined that while the NPDES Water Transfers Rule may be at odds with the Clean Water Act’s mission, it was based on a reasonable interpretation of the statute’s ambiguous language, and therefore it did not violate the Administrative Procedures Act.
