WASHINGTON DC

A coalition of nine conservation groups filed a lawsuit on June 13 supporting US federal protections of US waterways and wetlands. 

The suit, file in the Northern District of California, is prompted by alleged failure of the United States Environmental Protection Agency (USEPA) and the United States Army Corps of Engineers (Army Corps) to comply with the country's Clean Water Act.
