Utility Water Act Group v. Riverkeeper, Inc.
No. 07-597

Title:

    Utility Water Act Group v. Riverkeeper, Inc., et al.

Subject:

    Environmental Law, Administrative Law, Clean Water Act

Question:

    1. Whether § 316(b) of the Clean Water Act, 33 U.S.C. § 1326(b), which specifies
    that standards set under §§ 301 or 306 of the statute shall require that cooling water
    intake structures reflect the “best technology available for minimizing adverse
    environmental impact,” prohibits the United States Environmental Protection
    Agency (“EPA”) from considering the cost of a technology in comparison to the level
    of control it achieves and to the environmental “benefit” of that level of control?

    2. Whether § 316(b) prohibits EPA from authorizing existing facilities to use
    restoration measures (for example, fish stocking or habitat restoration) that, taken
    collectively with the existing characteristics of the cooling water intake structure,
    ensure that the intake structure minimizes “adverse environmental impact”?
