Organized by CBF, the 41-page lawsuit was filed Monday in U.S. District Court in Washington, D.C.
Plaintiffs who filed the lawsuit include the Virginia Waterman’s Association, based in Deltaville; the Maryland Watermen’s Association of Annapolis, Md.; the Maryland Saltwater Sportsfisherman’s Association; and former State Delegate W. Taylor Murphy of Warsaw, who also is a former Virginia Secretary of Natural Resources.
Among other things, the lawsuit asks the court to order EPA to “implement programs to reduce nitrogen, phosphorous and sediment discharged from all point sources within the Bay Watershed.”
