Ventnor City v. Fri

Citation: 5 ELR 20029
No. No. 1101-73, 6 ERC 2104/(D.N.J., 03/08/1974)

The court dismisses an action seeking injunctive relief against EPA approval of a federal grant for the construction of a sewerage treatment plant in Atlantic City. Plaintiffs' claim that additional studies of alternative methods of sewerage disposal are required is jurisdictionally defective, since the Federal Water Pollution Control Act Amendments of 1972 clearly provide that plaintiffs must give 60 days notice prior to filing a citizen suit, and no such notice was given in this case.
