Case no. 1:88-01886cvHoeveler, SETTLEMENT AGREEMENT (Judge Hoeveler), Jul.26, 1991.

 

Litigation Summary
Court :  Proceedings in Federal Court United States District Court, Southern District of Florida
Style:     United States v. South Florida Water Management District and Florida Department of Environmental Regulation, et al.
Case No.                88-1886-CIV-HOEVELER
Comments
This is the seminal case that spawned all of the collateral litigation on the Everglades.  The United States sued the SFWM District and the Florida Department of Environmental Regulation (current FDEP) alleging that the state agencies were failing to prevent agricultural activities in the Everglades Agricultural Area from discharging nutrient polluted waters into the Everglades.
The Department filed a counterclaim against the United States alleging that its activities were also causing pollution. The Florida Sugar Cane League and other agricultural interests were allowed to intervene on January 28, 1991.
On July 26, 1991, the United States, the District and the Department executed a Settlement Agreement and presented it to the federal court for approval. On February 24, 1992, the federal court approved the Settlement Agreement. In its ruling, the federal court also held that the United States, under the Federal National Environmental Policy Act (NEPA), was required to complete an environmental impact statement concurrently with the implementation of the Settlement Agreement.
Status
The Florida Sugar Cane League and other agricultural interests appealed the court order approving the Settlement Agreement, which was pending as consolidated Cases No. 92-4314 and 92-4831. The United States moved for a reconsideration as to the narrow issue of whether the court erred in holding that the United States was required to complete an EIS. The motion for reconsideration was denied on July 6, 1992.
The United States then cross-appealed on this narrow issue. The appeals were consolidated
