United Fresh Pleased with Federal Injunction Barring Implementation of WOTUS

Aug 28, 2015

“United Fresh is encouraged by North Dakota District Court Judge Ralph Ericson’s order issuing a preliminary injunction that would prevent the EPA’s “waters of the U.S.” rule from going into effect in 13 states across the country. Citing the irreparable harm these states would incur, and the fact that the EPA appears to have violated its congressional grant of authority, this decision reflects the grave concern and deep reservations the produce industry has long voiced in opposing EPA’s final rule defining “waters of the U.S.” as a broad federal overreach that would target America’s fresh fruit and vegetable growers. United Fresh will continue to work to advance legislation requiring the EPA to withdraw this rule and propose a new rule with broader outreach and consultation between the Administration, state and local governments and other stakeholders.”
