EPA Approves Florida Nutrient Rule and Proposes Rules for Additional Waters

Arnold & Porter Advisory

On November 30, 2012, EPA took a series of actions with far-reaching implications for the regulation of nutrient discharges in Florida, and potentially throughout the country.  EPA's actions are significant for all industries and sectors of the economy whose operations lead to nutrient discharges, including electric utilities, municipal wastewater treatment facilities, pulp and paper manufacturers, agricultural users of fertilizer, fertilizer manufacturers and many others. This Advisory summarizes EPA's actions regarding Florida's State Rule establishing nutrient water quality standards and EPA's proposed two sets of rules establishing federal criteria for nutrients.
