Item: Post Falls approves suit against EPA/Becky Kramer, SR
More Info: The Post Falls City Council passed a resolution tonight approving a lawsuit against the federal government over a phosphorus-reduction plan for the Spokane River. City Manager Eric Keck said Post falls is willing to do its part to reduce the amount of algae-spurring contaminates in treated sewage discharged into the river. But city officials contend that phosphorus limits in the plan crafted by the Washington Department of Ecology would strangle growth in North Idaho, unfairly penalizing Idaho dischargers while giving more generous limits to Washington municipalities.
