Case Challenging New Mexico Air Force Cleanup Dismissed

A New Mexico district court found that the New Mexico Hazardous Waste Act requires that administrative appeals related to permits issued under that statute be heard in the New Mexico Court of Appeals. That meant the federal court lacked jurisdiction to decide whether the New Mexico Environment Department exceeded its authority by requiring the cleanup of PFAS at the Cannon Air Force base near Clovis, New Mexico.
