On behalf of the Mississippi River Collaborative and a coalition of environmental groups, NRDC filed two suits against the USEPA related to dual pollution threats plaguing the Mississippi River. The suits seek action from the agency on nitrogen and phosphorus pollution, which stimulates excessive growth of algae, kick-starting the “Dead Zone” that forms in the Gulf of Mexico annually.
