Florida Wildlife Federation, Inc. et. al. v. Browner (N.D. Fla. 1999)

Following the state’s failure to establish total maximum daily loads (TMDLs) for many waters throughout the state and a lawsuit by environmental organizations, the court approved a consent decree directing the EPA to establish TMDLs for over five hundred waters on Florida’s list of impaired waters under section 303(d) of the Clean Water Act.
