Virginia EPA approves ‘Clean Water Act’ environmental protection bill

A federal appeals court has thrown out a lawsuit challenging the state’s new “Clean Water Action” program, which allows local governments to require water filtration and recycling.

The court ruled that the program does not go far enough to protect the environment, and is a “substantial intrusion” into the public’s right to clean water.

The program is scheduled to be phased in across the state starting in June 2018.

In the ruling issued on Friday, the 4th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals found that the plan is unconstitutional and violates the Constitution’s Equal Protection Clause, as well as the Federal Water Pollution Control Act, the Clean Water Act and other federal laws.

In February, the court ruled in favor of a group of businesses who sued the state over the program, saying the new rules violate their right to privacy and the rights of others.

The appeals court rejected arguments that the new program will be more efficient than other similar efforts, saying that it will require more infrastructure, and would require more water filtrations.

It will be far more expensive, it will have to be more expensive to clean up the rivers and streams and will require a lot more staff, the appeals court ruled.
