D.C. Circuit Holds that Total Maximum Daily Loads Under the Clean Water Act Require Daily Pollutant Limits
Richard Davis and Ami Grace-Tardy
Beveridge & Diamond, P.C., May 1, 2006

The U.S. Court of Appeals for the District of Columbia has decided that pollutant limits established for impaired waterbodies under the Clean Water Act must be daily loading limits, not annual or seasonal limits as currently allowed by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (“EPA”). In Friends of the Earth, Inc. v. Envtl. Prot. Agency, D.C. Cir., No. 05-5015, April 25, 2006, the D.C. Circuit addressed the issue of whether limits on pollutant loadings known as Total Maximum Daily Loads (“TMDLs”) can be established on an annual or seasonal basis rather than a daily basis. Breaking with the Second Circuit, the D.C. Circuit determined that discharge limits under the Clean Water Act TMDL program must be expressed as daily limits in accordance with the plain language of 33 U.S.C. § 1313(d)(1)(C).

Tenth Circuit Limits Preclusive Effect of Administrative Enforcement Under the Clean Water Act
Richard Davis and Rowan Seidel
Beveridge & Diamond, P.C., November 30, 2005

The U.S. Court of Appeals for the Tenth Circuit has held that a citizen plaintiff can bring equitable claims pursuant to the Clean Water Act, 33 U.S.C. § 1365(a) (2000), even if an administrative enforcement action has already been commenced. In Paper, Allied-Industrial Chemical and Energy Workers International Union v. Continental Carbon Co., 10th Cir., No. 03-6243, Nov. 8, 2005, the Tenth Circuit addressed the issue of whether the jurisdictional bar of the Clean Water Act, 33 U.S.C. § 1319(g)(6)(A)(ii), applies to both civil penalty claims and equitable claims. Breaking with the First and Eighth Circuits, the Tenth Circuit determined that the Clean Water Act does not bar concurrent citizen suits for injunctive or declaratory relief where an administrative enforcement action is ongoing.
