Waterkeepers Washington moves for summary judgment against Defendants U.S. Environmental Protection Agency and Administrator Gina McCarthy. EPA and the Administrator have failed to comply with the nondiscretionary obligation under 33 U.S.C. § 1313(c)(4) to promptly promulgate revised human health criteria based on an accurate fish consumption rate for Washington that adequately protects the fishable and swimmable uses required by the Clean Water Act. Waterkeepers Washington requests an order from the Court requiring EPA to finalize the proposed revised fish consumption rate and human health water quality standards for Washington within 30 days of the Court‟s order.
