This morning, the Federal Circuit released a precedential opinion in a case appealed from the Court of Federal Claims addressing the Clean Water Act. Here is the introduction to the opinion.

City of Wilmington v. United States (Precedential)

This case arises under the Clean Water Act (“CWA”) and concerns the requirement that federal entities comply with local efforts to abate water pollution. The city of Wilmington, Delaware (“Wilmington”), appeals a decision by the U.S. Court of Federal Claims holding that certain fees Wilmington assessed against the United States for stormwater management are not reasonable service charges under 33 U.S.C. § 1323. Wilmington appeals. We affirm.
