  • Mold remediation in Texas may require $3M cleanup through January
    A quasi-governmental surface-water agency in Waco, Texas, has selected contractors for mold remediation that could cost $3 million and last through January. The authority plans to file a claim with the Texas Municipal League although its policy doesn't cover mold damage. Black mold was found in the walls but not in the air inside the facility, although other types of mold have sickened employees, officials said.

  • Judge: Developer must pay $5.2M in Ga. stormwater runoff lawsuit
    A judge ruled against a developer in a $5.2 million lawsuit over stormwater runoff that allegedly damaged a neighboring subdivision's lake with sediment in Marietta, Ga. The developer was ordered to correct its stormwater management and pay $1.5 million to the homeowners association that brought the lawsuit, plus attorney fees and awards for individual plaintiffs. The decision cannot be appealed because the defendants were not present in court during the trial, according to this article. The Marietta Daily Journal (Ga.)

  • EPA seeks new court hearing on cross-state air pollution rule
    The Environmental Protection Agency is petitioning the U.S. Court of Appeals for the D.C. Circuit for a new hearing before the full circuit regarding the cross-state air pollution rule. The court found that the EPA went beyond its "jurisdictional limits" with the rule focusing on sulfur dioxide and nitrogen oxide emissions from coal-burning power plants. The EPA said it was within its authority under the Clean Air Act and that the court's ruling was "inconsistent" with prior decisions. Reuters (10/5) LinkedInFacebookTwitterEmail this Story
