On September 16, 2013, the Las Virgenes-Triunfo Joint Powers Authority (JPA), a joint venture of Triunfo Sanitation District (TSD) and Las Virgenes Municipal Water District (LVMWD) filed a federal court action seeking "Declaratory and Injunctive Relief" from the Total Maximum Daily Load mandates (TMDLs) for Malibu Creek and Lagoon published by the United States Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) on July 2. The filing cites numerous instances of inappropriate actions by EPA in the course of fomulating the TMDL document. The JPA has stated that implementation of the TMDL mandates would impose costs in the hundreds of million of dollars on the communities it serves without any assurances of significant water quality improvements in the Malibu Creek Watershed.
