Iowa Judge Upholds Clean Water Standards
Thursday, April 5, 2012
An Iowa Judge has tossed out a case challenging clean water standards intended to stop pollution from entering the state’s unpolluted waterways. In their story about the case, the Associated Press caught up with Josh Mandelbaum, Staff Attorney in ELPC’s Des Moines office.
”‘It’s a major victory for water quality in Iowa,” said Josh Mandelbaum, an attorney for the Environmental Law and Policy Center, an environmental advocacy group. “These rules are designed to protect public health and to protect our waterways and the uses of those waterways whether it’s making them safe for outdoor recreation or safe for drinking water.’”
