Thursday, the U.S. Supreme Court reportedly ruled in favor of an Idaho couple seeking to construct a home on land that the Environmental Protection Agency had designated as a protected wetland under a landmark federal anti-pollution statute.

The Supreme Court reversed a lower court’s judgment against Chantell and Mike Sackett, which had upheld the EPA’s determination that their property near a lake contained 1972 Clean Water Act-protected wetlands.

The ramifications of the new ruling will likely be seen as a major blow to the agencies authority.
