Friends of the Everglades v. South Florida Water Management District

Petition for certiorari denied on November 29, 2010
Docket No. Op. Below Argument Opinion Vote Author Term
10-196 11th Cir. N/A N/A N/A N/A OT 2010

Issue: Whether all waters of the United States may be treated as a “unitary” whole for purposes of the Act's provisions requiring permits for point source discharges, so that transferring pollutants from one distinct water body to another does not constitute an “addition” of the pollutants to navigable waters and therefore does not require a permit.
