Groups Challenge EPA

Several environmental and animal protection groups are currently suing the Environmental Protection Agency due to the agency not updating the lacking regulations on slaughterhouses and the horrendous polluting of rivers they cause.

Facilities are currently able to discharge processed wastewater directly into rivers and other waterways and the EPA stated in October that it would not revise federal water standards for plants that did so.

The argument is that the lack of regulation allows for the increase of nitrogen in waterways which leads to the boost of algal blooms. Algae suffocate fish and prevent the growth of plants that naturally filtrate and keep the rivers and streams healthy.

The suit asks for judicial review of the decision to not update regulations that were last revised about 15 years ago and date back decades, leaving many requirements outdated and obsolete due to technological advances.
