ABSTRACT
The article discusses the decision on the case Florida Public Interest Research Group v. United States Environmental Protection Agency, concerning the agency's duty to review water quality standards. The ruling is a success for citizen watchdog groups concerned about the attempts of states to circumvent the requirements of the Clean Water Act through complicated administrative rule changes. The lower court was required to investigate whether the agency is enforcing clean water laws and oversee the review of Impaired Water Program in Florida.
