Lawsuit seeks to enforce stricter controls at Reid Gardner

Tribal neighbors of the Reid Gardner Generating Station have filed a lawsuit with a federal appeals court to enforce stricter emissions controls at the coal-fired facility outside of Las Vegas, Nev., according to The Las Vegas Sun. The Paiute Indian tribe wants the 9th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals to order the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency to enforce stricter air standards than those already approved for the station.
