Decision of a three judge panel of the 3rd District Court of Appeals affirming the district court opinion that preserves the EPA’s Total Maximum Daily Load approach to cleaning the Chesapeake Bay Watershed.  Farm and home builder organizations had opposed the plan which requires non-point sources of pollution to share responsibility for cleanup with point sources.  From Justia.
