A Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals case, Natural Resources Defense Council
Inc. v. County of Los Angeles [636 F.3d 1235 (9th Cir. 2011)], is being
considered by the U.S. Supreme Court for review. The case presents issues
of nationwide significance for all operators of municipal separate storm
sewer systems (MS4). This case, if allowed to stand and not be overturned by the
Supreme Court, could have far-reaching implications and create confusion for the
lower courts in deciding future MS4-related matters.
