The city of Sargent, Arizona has filed a lawsuit against the state of Arizona and the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) for allegedly violating the Clean Water Act and the Clean Air Act by failing to adequately address the environmental impacts of the construction of a dam at Sargant Lake.
The lawsuit, filed in the U,S.
District Court for the District of Arizona, accuses the Arizona Department of Environmental Quality (DEQ) of violating the federal Clean Water and Clean Air Acts by failing “to adequately monitor, manage, or assess the environmental impact of the dam project on the environment and public health, safety, and welfare.”
The lawsuit also accuses the DEQ of violating federal law by failing on multiple occasions to disclose its findings of the EPA’s assessment of the project’s environmental impact.
The dam is currently under construction and is expected to be completed in 2020.
The EPA says it has not yet responded to the lawsuit, and it’s unclear when the agency plans to respond to the complaint.
The City of New Mexico and the State of Arizona have also filed similar lawsuits against the federal government.
In both lawsuits, the states allege that the federal agencies failed to adequately monitor the impacts of their actions, which have resulted in harm to people and the environment.
A recent report by the United States Army Corps of Engineers found that the Sargents dam has had a negative impact on groundwater quality.
According to a recent report in the New York Times, a new study by the Corps found that while the dam’s total capacity has been reduced by 8 percent, the total amount of dissolved oxygen in the groundwater has been doubled.
The study concluded that the water was contaminated with heavy metals and other chemicals, and that the impact of pollution was “unprecedented.”
The Corps concluded that this level of pollution is “likely to be irreversible.”
The Sargment Lake Dam will likely be built over a 2.5-acre area.
Sargam, which is about 15 miles northwest of Phoenix, was named as a “natural gas production site” by the EPA, and was designated a “no-gas zone” by an Arizona Department for Environmental Quality.
In a report from the U.,S.
Army Corps, the agency also stated that the project has been a “keystone project” for the energy sector in the state.
The Army Corps concluded in the report that the development of the Sargon project is an “essential step in securing new energy supplies and jobs for local communities,” and has been approved by the State Legislature and the Governor of Arizona.
The new lawsuit was filed by the Arizona Center for Environmental Justice, a nonprofit legal organization that is fighting the dam construction.
“We have been fighting for years to ensure that we have clean water and air,” said Amanda Miller, director of the Arizona Environmental Justice Project, in a statement.
“This lawsuit is an important step in protecting that clean water.
The public has a right to know what the federal EPA has been doing to ensure the safety and cleanliness of their drinking water, and we hope that this lawsuit sends a strong message that our drinking water is safe, we’re protected, and our government is doing the right thing.”
Miller said the new lawsuit comes after years of public pressure for the city to comply with the Clean and Safe Drinking Water Act (CSPWPA) and the Endangered Species Act (ESA).
The EPA did not respond to multiple requests for comment.
